Faust II
Ballett by Xin Peng Wang
Musik by Hans Abrahamsen, Louis Andriessen, Luciano Berio, Michael Gordon, David Lang und Pēteris Vasks

“All ephemeral is just an allegory”

The story of Faust – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe created his world famous legend as a dramatic dance between the ambition of knowledge and the desire for redemption.

Xin Peng Wang is known for his important choreographic interpretations of literature classics. With this new creation, Wang invites the audience to explore the magical world of this classic parable about humanity. In symbiosis with the spectacular sculptures of artist Li Hui, the choreographer creates extensive moment of ideal classical beauty and touching +allegories of today’s world.

Making use of exceptional elaborated costumes, modern visual technique and images ranging from the dark ages to modernity he deals with the hubris of a human being that tries to reach and understand the incomprehensible.

Lucia Lacarra
Lucia Lacarra, born in San Sebastián, knew from earliest childhood that she was born to be a ballerina. Whenever she saw pictures of the ballet school in Monte Carlo, sponsored by Grace Kelly, she cried because she still had no chance to dance.

It was only when in her small Basque hometown a studio was opened that she was able to begin with lessons. She was ten at that time. Soon she was sent to a summer course directed by Rosella Hightower. There Lucia's mother was strongly advised to support her daughter's obvious talent. So she was sent to San Sebastián to MentxuMedel who worked with Lucia for three years in a completely unselfish way to prepare her for the audition to Victor Ullate's school in Madrid. Already in her second year there she was given a contract to the Ballet de Victor Ullate. She was just fifteen when she danced Balanchine's Allegro Brillante. In the course of four seasons this was followed by Concerto Barocco, Fokine's Les Sylphides, four works by Hans van Manen, Nils Christe's Before Nightfall as well as four pieces by her mentor Ullate who gave her the necessary self-confidence.

In 1994, she joined Roland Petit's Ballets de Marseille as a Principal. Petit immediately entrusted her with the role of Esmeralda, with Patrick Dupont as her partner, in Notre Dame de Paris, replacing Dominique Khalfouni. From Roland Petit she learned above all to always be emotionally present on stage and she felt that in this company everything was danced in a somewhat more classical style. Within three years she danced the leading roles in seven ballets by Roland Petit, four of which were created on her, most notably Angélique in Le Guépard and, as partner of Nicolas Le Riche, in the famous Le Jeunehommeet la Mort.

“Who is always anxious striving, whom we can release!

A short portrait about the Ensemble

Ballett Dortmund currently consists of 21 dancers coming from 18 nations. Additionally, the NRW Juniorballett, which was founded in 2014 and comprises 12 dancers, is closely associated with Ballett Dortmund. The Junior Ballet provides the opportunity to young dancers to work for a period of two years in a professional environment and to gain work and stage experience by participating in Ballett Dortmund’s productions and also to develop and realize own dance projects.

Under the direction of Xin Peng Wang Ballett Dortmund has become an innovative power in the dance scene of Germany. Wang, who bases his artistic work on neoclassical dance language, counts on the discovery of new (literary) topics and composers for full-length story ballets.

Further, the repertoire includes new creations and existing works of renowned choreographers like William Forsythe, Hans van Manen, Mauro Bigonzetti, Christian Spuck, Benjamin Millepied, Alexander Ekman, Cayetano Soto, Edwaard Liang, Douglas Lee, Demis Volpi, Itzik Galili, Jacopo Godani, Richard Siegal, Edward Clug, Johan Inger or George Balanchine.

Also, the annual International Ballet Galas have become a strong trademark for Dortmund. International stars as Alina Cojocaru, Lucia Lacarra, Iana Salenko, Friedemann Vogel, Steven McRae or Herman Cornejo are regulary guesting in Dortmund. The idea of interchange is continued in tours and guest performances of Ballett Dortmund in Russia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Finland, France and Sweden and also in cooperation with the Opera de Paris, New York City Ballet or the Hong Kong Ballet.

Ballett Dortmund further focuses on offensive cultural work in the social sector, such as the integrative youth platform “Schoolmotions” or the seniors dance theatre project. Further, a summer school with internationally renowned teachers and students from all over the world takes place once a year in the Ballet Centre.
