Ballet meets street dance: Both choreographers of this evening’s performance—Edouard Hue and Muhammed Kaltuk—started their dance careers in hip-hop. From there, they conquered contemporary dance. Now they meet the Ballett Theater Basel ensemble. Both of their pieces bring into focus the differences as well as the similarities of the dance styles. Episodic movement images full of dynamic energy emerge. Basel-based choreographer Kaltuk also brings dancers from his own independent company MEK onto the stage. The movements meander between all styles, boundlessly and in the moment. For the choreographers, the guests, and the company, nothing is off limits on this evening.
Tickets are CHF 10.
