World premiere 

Coproduction Leipziger Ballett + euro-scene Leipzig

A ballet evening by Maguy Marin and Mario Schröder in cooperation with euro-scene Leipzig concludes the 32nd festival edition on 13. November. 

With DUO D’EDEN (1986) and GROSSE FUGE (2001), the Leipzig Ballet presents two classics from the oeuvre of the great French dancer and choreographer Maguy Marin for the first time. Ballet director and chief choreographer Mario Schröder creates a world premiere to the music of the contemporary French composer Pascal Dusapin, thus creating an additional surface of friction between his movement language and Maguy Marin’s choreographic work.

“She is blessed with a sense of fantasy and the absurd,” wrote the New York Times about the most relevant representative of dance theater in France. As the daughter of Spanish civil war refugees, Maguy Marin was born in Toulouse. At the age of eight, she began to dance and thus started her career as a classic ballet dancer. Soon a wish arose to reorient herself: Maurice Béjart was her new teacher. Many years later, she created her own company and found a home: first in a choreographic center in a Paris suburb, and finally in the region of Leipzig’s partner city, Lyon. In 2016, Maguy Marin was awarded the Golden Lion for her life’s work in the context of the Venice Dance Biennial.

Before the performance on Sunday at 7:00 pm, an introduction to the piece will take place with Maguy Marin and Mario Schröder.

On Friday November 11th, we will be screening the film MAGUY MARIN – L’URGENCE D’AGIR at the Passage film theater.
