  1. Yesterday, Staatsballett Berlin began its new season with presenting the modern piece "Plateau Effect" by Jefta van Dinther. They performed at "Komische Oper" Berlin, an opera house which used to be home for a so-called "Tantztheater" for many years, long time ago, supported by the founder and first intendant/General manager Walter Felsenstein. So presenting the piece here, which was rather theatre than dancing imo, was somehow a nod to this legacy, but I am not sure if it was intended. If it was, then certainly a nod with a twist.

  2. Hello there Folks, New here to ballet forum so hello to you all! So I run New Works Ballet Theatre, a new ballet company based in Bristol, with the intention of bringing more ballet to the South West of England and beyond, brand new inventive ballets and retellings and creating more jobs for professional dancers.

  6. Here in Budapest there's quite a growing contemporary/contemporary ballet scene. Here's a review/piece on one company that I've gotten to know, Inversedance founded by Zoltan Fodor. They have a broad rep that includes adult peformances and kids shows (this article is on the latter). I've been really impressed with them, and not just because I train with them either, so I encourage you to check them out and give this a read http://jelterps.blogspot.hu/2016/05/Inversedance.html
