Horečná-Godani-Robbins: Urban utopias of dance
The National Finnish Ballet’s new piece celebrates a triple bill of urban energy, movement, and macabre humour. A compilation of three works by Natalia Horečná, Jacopo Godani and Jerome Robbins, each is performed in Finland for the first time.
A prima ballerina at the Hamburg Ballet and at the Nederlands Dans Theater, Natalia Horečná is acclaimed for her choreographic capacity. She brings to the table a medley of classic ballet and powerful emotional expression, and reveals her love of dark comedy.
Jacopo Godani is a world-renowned Italian dancer and choreographer. He has created works for the Nederlands Dans Theater and the Royal Danish Ballet. His sharp and dramatic piece Spazio- Tempo premiered in 2010 at the Semper Oper Ballet.
The third culprit is Jerome Robbins. His work Glass Pieces premiered in 1983 in New York. In this lively piece he combines postmodern dance with the movement and language of classical ballet.
Together, the three acts promise to satisfy your avid curiosity to discover the energetic and macabre side of ballet.
