Vibrant Metropolis / Idyllic Nature. Kirchner – The Berlin Years
ZURICH  •  Kunsthaus  •  10 February - 7 May 2017
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880 – 1938) is the master of Expressionism. Comprising some 160 works, Vibrant Metropolis / Idyllic Nature. Kirchner – The Berlin Years examines the young artist’s groundbreaking creative phase in Berlin from 1911 to 1917. It focuses on the dichotomy between his twin lives in the bustling capital city and on the tranquil Baltic Sea island of Fehmarn, where he spent the summer months from 1912 to 1914. The contrasts between these two places of inspiration could hardly be greater; yet the works from that period bear witness to Kirchner’s quest for a life remote from bourgeois norms, and for a new, primal form of expression.

Une Autre Passion
Grand Théâtre de Genève Ballet Company
GENEVA  •  Grand Théâtre de Genève  •  28 March - 6 April 2017

Une Autre Passion
Ballet based on St Matthew Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach

For this “Other Passion”, constructed from elements of Bach’s great score, Swedish choreographer and film director Pontus Lidberg will explore the universal themes of suffering, passion and desire. His new production for the Geneva Ballet Company removes the narrative of Jesus’ death to focus instead on an abstract constellation of dance and images, uniting grief and beauty, from which we may reflect upon our relationship to the images of suffering and death that surround us.

Choreographer: Pontus Lidberg
Costumes Designer: Reid and Harriet Design
Scenographers: Pontus Lidberg & Carolyn Wong 
Lighting Designer: Carolyn Wong
Videos: Pontus Lidberg, Martin Nisser & Lars Gustafson
