  • Infinity  ▏​Gauthier Dance Theaterhaus Stuttgart

    Infinity ▏​Gauthier Dance Theaterhaus Stuttgart

    Gauthier Dance//Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart is a young, dynamic company of 16 highly individual, versatile dancers, directed by the dancer, choreographer and musician Eric Gauthier. The Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart presents contemporary dance by Gauthier and internationally renowned choreographers such as Mauro Bigonzetti, William Forsythe, Jiří Kylián, Itzik Galili, Paul Lightfoot/Sol León and Hans van Manen. Set up in October 2007, Gauthier Dance established itself in the German dance scene with record speed and has become an international brand. During the first years, the company´s acclaim was based on their original, humorous bills that also attracted a big young audience. Today, the programme is every bit as accessible but offers a wider choice of styles and moods. In summer 2010, Gauthier Dance saw the successful world première of their first full-length piece, Christian Spuck´s POPPEA//POPPEA, which was included among the 10 top productions of the season 2009/10 by the British specialist magazine Dance Europe and earned Spuck the German Theatre Prize THE FAUST 2011. Two years later, the „German Academy Award“ once again went to a member of Gauthier Dance: Anna Süheyla Harms won THE FAUST 2013 as Best Performer Dance. The company has a reputation for breaking new ground. Following a stereoscopic version of Gauthier´s choreography Threesome which was also screened as a supporting film to Wim Wenders´ PINA and seen by more than 50,000 German arthouse cinemagoers, Gauthier Dance tackled an even more ambitious project: POPPEA//POPPEA became the first full-length dance piece to be turned into a 3D film and was broadcast on the French-German television channel arte in February 2014.
    Parallel to its growing fame, Gauthier Dance has intensified collaborations with international star choreographers. Following the rave success of Mauro Bigonzetti´s narrative ballet Alice the next full-length piece saw its world première in June 2016: Marco Goecke´s exploration of the myth NIJINSKI – a ballet which was equally celebrated by critics and audiences and is widely regarded as another milestone in the company´s development. Awards include a Premio Danza&Danza 2016 for Marco Goecke as Best Choreographer and for Rosario Guerra as Dancer of the Year plus a particularly gratifying distinction: In the Yearbook 2017, the readers of the German specialist magazine tanz voted NIJINSKI the first winner in the new category Favourite of the Year. In fact, there seems to be no lack of special occasions for Gauthier Dance. In March 2017, the company celebrated its first ten years with the anniversary programme BIG FAT TEN. The schedule for the season 2017/18 is just as stacked with highlights. On top of three premières at Theaterhaus Stuttgart, the company will tour to Toronto, New York, Tel Aviv, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Monaco and Berlin, as well as to seven cities in Switzerland for the 30th anniversary edition of the dance festival steps.
    Besides well over 100 „normal“ shows per year Gauthier Dance undertakes an extensive Educational and Community Outreach programme, the first of its kind in Germany: Gauthier Dance Mobile. With a specially tailored repertory of works which can be presented in small spaces, the pioneering format brings contemporary dance to people who cannot come to the theatre themselves. Gauthier Dance Mobile performs at youth centres, hospitals or at old people´s homes.
    The Theaterhaus Stuttgart, which opened its doors in 1985, is a unique cultural center which presents theatre, music, dance, cabaret, comedy, literature, political discussions and more on a total of four stages. The Theaterhaus has a long tradition of producing and presenting dance theatre; best known are the collaborations between Marcia Haydée and Ismail Ivo. The Theaterhaus has also traditionally been and continues to be, a venue for the free-lance dance scene in Stuttgart. Gauthier Dance is the First Resident Contemporary Dance Company in Stuttgart.

    Holland Baroque likes to share the stage with playful, inspiring musicians. Composer and improviser Wu Wei is such a musician. Wu Wei can do everything with the sheng, the Chinese mouth organ that represents three thousand years of Chinese music culture and that is a miracle of harmony, melody and rhythmic possibilities.
    Why does a baroque orchestra meet a sheng player?

    The actual encounter of orchestra and musical guest always takes place in the field of a shared sound world. Holland Baroque and Wu Wei connect the beautiful sheng sound with baroque music and hear that old traditions and exotic instruments can produce new stories.

    The result is a concert of new and old compositions that tells one thing in particular: Music is alive and continues to be so when creative spirits leap upon music that still has a huge power of expressiveness today. Whether that is music from Western or Eastern cultures, composed or improvised music is no longer relevant.
    "Sheng means hope and hope is life," says Wu Wei. He is a modern musician who carries out an ancient tradition. It’s no coincidence that on Wu Wei’s sheng case a sticker is stuck with his motto: "Gutes bleibt, neues kommt”. A Motto that Holland Baroque can relate to very wel. Cherish what needs to be preserved and be open to new sounds. Because Holland Baroque thinks old music does not exist. The music is only finished when you play it.
     'Giving old notes new life, that is the holy grail.' T. Steenbrink, Holland Baroque
