In this programme:
Singulière Odyssée - Sol León & Paul Lightfoot
Singulière Odyssée (2016) by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot is symbolic of the choreographers’ awareness of how the predominance of travel, of moving and of living in an everlasting state of flux has carried through the DNA of our times. The piece is set in a train station based on the art deco waiting room of Basel’s Central Station. Dancers come and go as passersby in transit with the exception of one character who lingers in waiting and watches travelers go by and come back, in a moment frozen in time. For this piece, the music, titled Exiles, has been especially composed by none other than Max Richter.
World premiere - Crystal Pite
Crystal Pite’s gripping work is never afraid to explore the body’s full potential, and rarely escapes its relation to the group. Her latest piece, The Statement (2016) on scripted spoken word by
Jonathon Young, had international audiences sitting on the edge of their seats. Pite has been an associate choreographer with the company since 2008.
World premiere - Marco Goecke
