"A new full-length ballet created for the Royal Ballet of Flanders
Choreography: Christian Spuck"
And with an orchestra! Since when do they have one?
Anyone familiar with this ballet or the choreographer?
I wonder what style it is?
And if there's any belgians here, can you make the train back to Brussels after the show?
It's a long walk from Antwerp...
Found this about his first ballet, from Financial Times (well, actually from here...)
Lulu, Christian Spuck's first full-length ballet, starts out so strong, it's almost too good to be true. The Stuttgart Ballet's young resident choreographer successfully mixes elements of Tanztheater , a striking modern ballet vocabulary, and enough narrative (freely adapted from the Wedekind play on which Alban Berg based his opera) to appease traditionalists.Spuck's fascinating combinations are dazzlingly fast, combining classical fireworks and some of the most original choreography since William Forsythe stepped out of the Stuttgart corps. There is nothing extraneous in Spuck's movement: it is non-stop and speaks volumes.
To clarify, I found this:
"Christian Spuck geeft met veel groteske humor in deze schitterende balletvoorstelling uitdrukking aan het moderne (absurde) leven."
Now I don't speak flemish, but to me that looks like :
Christian Spuck gives with very grotesque humour, in this brilliant ballet, expression to the modern (absurd) life.
How does one interpret that?
