Choreographies by Marie Chouinard, Marco Goecke, Hofesh Shechter & Cayetano Soto

With 16 dancers

For years, Eric Gauthier has been winning hearts and minds at the Grand Théâtre. After Mega Israel in 2019, his Stuttgart Theaterhaus company returns with four radical takes on that most classical of ballets, Swan Lake.

The big name choreographers Gauthier has assembled for the task are Marie Chouinard, who offers a sensual mix of dance, electronic music and video; Cayetano Soto, reimagining the moment of transformation from woman to swan; Marco Goecke, seeking out beauty in deep despair; and Hofesh Shechter, with the characteristically dark vision he also brings to Double Murder later in the season. These 20-minute pieces, each as different in style as the choreographers themselves, together make up the programme of Swan LakeS.

In the theatre foyer, visitors can also watch Gauthier's film project The Dying Swans, 16 short solos by 16 choreographers, including Luxembourg-based Elisabeth Schilling.
