Concerning

After drinking at the source of the Cullberg company, at the crossroads between classical techniques and contemporary writing, these three choreographers now produce an expressive, virtuoso form of dance, which extends the aesthetic line attached to the diversity of present writings.

Hispanity, solitude and beautiful youth
For Remansos, created in 1997 in New York, Nacho Duato took his inspiration from the title of a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca, just as much as from the pieces by the composer Enrique Granado which accompany the ballet: Valses Poéticos and Danzas Españolas. Thus delivering a work with a discreet Hispanity whose staging spices up the neoclassical language.
Created in 1996 for the Cullberg Ballet, founded on three compositions by Arvo Pärt, Mats Ek’s Solo For Two is a sometimes comical, sometimes sombre variation on the difficulty of being together, the couple and ultra-modern solitude. This piece, which entered the repertory of the Ballet of the Opéra de Lyon in 1998, is thus a concentrate of the particular writing of Mats Ek, the former director of the Cullberg ballet.
What Johan Inger, another former director of the Cullberg ballet, tries to capture is youth, with I New Then, created in 2012. With Van Morrison’s music, nine dancers weave a chronicle of human relations and explore the spirit of freedom of the 1960s in an explosion of leaps, élans and improbable stops, which express the energy and freshness of this beautiful youth.
