Broken Fall / The Moor's Pavane / Choreartium: Choreographies by Russell Maliphant / José Limón / Léonide Massine
MUNICH  •  Bayerische Staatsoper  •  Ongoing

The Bavarian State Ballet responds to the call for innovation in dance during the season by dedicating it to the classic modernity as well as challenging its audience’s perceptions with original contemporary works. With his masterpiece Choreartium, originating from the tradition of the Ballets Russes, choreographer Léonide Massine laid the groundwork for future artists by visualizing music through dance. Thereby, he created unsentimental works that, apart from their metaphysical content, stand for pure aesthetic 'material' which will be accessible to many generations to come. José Limón’s ballet The Moor‘s Pavane, a take on Shakespeare’s drama between Otello and Desdemona, focuses on the human inability to love, trust and his lack of compassion and empathy. To this day, the ballet by Mexican-American choreographer José Limón from 1949 is considered one of the key-repertory pieces of American Modern dance.
