Gauthier Dance//Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart | July 15⁠—19

U.S. Premiere
Co-Sponsored by the Goethe-Institut and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany

In the U.S. premiere of Swan Lakes, four of today’s leading international choreographers create their own versions of the classic story. Germany’s Gauthier Dance performs contemporary adaptations by Marie Chouinard, Marco Goecke, Cayetano Soto, and Hofesh Shechter, as stylistically varied as the star choreographers themselves.

  • The trailblazing avant garde choreographer Marie Chouinard immerses audiences in a sensual experience where dance, electronic music, and video projections merge, set to a new score by composer Louis Dufort.
  • Spanish choreographer Cayetano Soto focuses on the moment of transformation, aligned with a classical-electronic soundscape by composer and cellist Peter Gregson.
  • Boundary-breaking Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter plays with the darker elements of the fairytale.
  • Marco Goecke, Artist-in-Residence of Gauthier Dance, sports an all-male cast to contrast the female connotation of the swan and utilizes the original Tchaikovsky composition.

Gauthier Dance made their U.S. debut at Jacob’s Pillow in 2015.
