Strauss&Co, creation! A choreographed premiere.
3 dancers – classical, breakdance and contemporary – combine, confront and intertwine their movements with 4 musicians.
The result is a choreography in which the spirit of the waltz lurks, and energy flows between arts and aesthetics, sounds and movements.
In this flamboyant ballet, the 7 artists tell us how the waltz and polka, originally popular, spread to all the courts of Europe and beyond, propelling Strauss to superstar status.
They ask the audience about the permeability of genres, and explore how the dance moves from the street to the concert hall.
