25.8. ● Meet the Artist

Duration 60 min

In “LOYALTY”, Los Angeles and Berlin-based choreographer Adam Linder returns to ballet with a fresh take on its traditional vocabulary. Linder dives into the signature aspects of the genre – corps-de-ballet formations, theatrical imagery and partnering – reworking them with five world-class dancers. Performed in three acts and set to the music of the British avant-garde band Coil, this new approach to ballet interweaves virtuosity, theatricality and abstraction. Linder creates a hybridized physicality that is crude yet finessed, dark yet light and curiously both animal and human.
