  1. For the first time, the Youth Grand Prix Germany takes place in Berlin. I am especially looking forward to the Gala on October 3rd. According to the venue Admiralspalast, the following dancers are scheduled to perform: Lucia Lacarra and Matthew Golding - Ballet Dortmund Kristina Kretova and Igor Tsvirko - Bolschoi Ballet Maria Khoreva and Kimin Kim – Mariinsky Ballet St. Petersburg Dorothée Gilbert and Hugo Marchand - Paris Opera Ballet Elisa Carrillo Cabrera and Mikhail Kaniskin (former) - Staatsballett Berlin Mackenzie Brown and Henrik Erikson - Stuttgart Ballet Nicoletta Manni and Timofej Andrijashenko - Teatro alla Scala Note: this cast has not been confirmed/published on the YGP website yet. Links: www.admiralspalast.theater https://en.ygp-germany.com
  2. Since today, 3 pieces created for the Gauthier Dance Company in Stuttgart are available to watch for free here: https://www.3sat.de/kultur/theater-und-tanz/swan-lakes-100.html Choerographers Shechter, Soto and Goecke were invited to create pieces with the topic "Swanlakes" (yes Plural). Be prepared, it's very...ummm ..contemporary 😀. I hope it is not geo-blocked.
  3. Yeah I noticed that her name is missing on the company list.

Promotions and new dancers at Staatsballett Berlin announced (seen on instagram): Demi-Soloists: Alexandre Cagnat, Yuria Isaka, Alexander Bird, Alizee Sicre Corps: -Timothy Dutson (coming from Birmingham Royal Ballet) Returned after a 1 year break: -Wei Wang Also interesting: principal dancer Iana Salenko announced on instagram that she is expecting her third child

  6. What I also got from German amazon: Sylvie Guillem - At Work & Portrait [2 DVDs] https://www.amazon.de/dp/B006ZV6WZA/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_g_KVVRV9CPJA4HWQRCR9T4 On the Edge https://www.amazon.de/dp/B002N7FLBQ/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_g_AJNBTC43NFHBGW29TCA5 Hopefully also available in the UK?
  7. There has been established a very interesting cultural festival in recent years in the middle of the Swiss mountains, called Origen Cultural Festival. I admit I've never heard of it before but it must be well known among dancers/choreographers. Some present their new choreographies there. From the website: "Origen – Rhaeto-Romanic cultural bridging between North and South The name Origen is Rhaeto-Romanic and means genesis, origin, creation. Accordingly, the programme of the festival is a commitment to the cultural power of a trilingual region which thrives on cultural exchange. The cultural organisation Origen is responsible for the annual Origen Festival of Culture and primarily dedicates itself to the promotion and production of professional contemporary opera. Origen has its own opera house: Riom Castle was converted into a theatre and inaugurated in 2006. Origen does not understand itself as an alpine ghetto of a dying language, but as a vivid testimonial to a lively language community who dares embark on cultural adventures again and again." http://www.origen.ch/Aktuell.1994.0.html?&L=4 Part of the annual program is dedicated to dance, from what I've seen mostly dedicated to contemporary dance. The performances happen either in a red tower (very impressive) or in the Riom castle. This year, the lineup was very impressive, check out the program, choreographers and dancers here (among them Juliano Nunes, Xander Parish and other Mariinsky dancers, Jonah Cook, Shale Wagman, Ksenia Ryshkova): http://www.origen.ch/TANZ.2035.0.html?&L=0 Would be a great location to travel to!
  8. Wonderful interview! I'm very sad that I never saw her in a live performance. At least, videos are available. I admire her tremendously. 💓
  9. Oywey. Antonio is a great talent, I'm not so convinced by what I saw of her...I wish her all the best.
  10. I read somewhere that Margarita Fernandez is Annarella Sanchez' daughter, is that true? So they are both coming from this school?
  11. There's certainly no need to "defend" Shale Wagman, just this much about Munich: he was hired at a time when literally no company was hiring new dancers (headline: Corona). And further, his promotion after only one performance speaks for itself😀. I'm curious about Antonio. As I read in an interview, the Royal Ballet London was his 1st choice, but new contracts are probably still not given there because of Corona. Let's see how long he stays in Munich.
  12. Beautiful words Mandy, so true❤❤. See you in Munich!!
