The Latest News - Bavarian State Ballet
Première "Exits and Entrances"
BIPED is a Cunningham par excellence: a post-modern ballet with a sensuous appeal and the distinct casual cool attitude – even the most intricate movement sequences look organic. The dancers enter and exit the performance space throughout the piece, sometimes in tune with Gavin Bryars' music composition. Not only did Mr. Bryars, one of the greatest post-minimalists of the 1980s, provide accompaniment for performances of the Merce Cunningam Dance Company on countless occassions, he will also play live with his ensemble for the performances of BIPED in Munich.
Only a few weeks ago, Munich resident by choice, Richard Siegal, was given the prestigious "Munich Dance Award". His portfolio includes such successful works as CoPirates and Black Swan, as well as the ever popular adaptation of the vibrant The New 45 for the Bavarian State Ballet II / Junior Company. Together with industrial designer Konstantin Grcic and visual artist / composer Carsten Nicolai, Siegal creates an interdisciplinary art installation for Unitxt: the mood on stage is influenced by projections, objects in the form of costumes shape the movements of the dancers in new found ways: they extend the radius of their kinesphere, impact their dynamics and enhance the quality of movement. The dancers transform into virtuosic sculptures with the aid of Siegal’s made to measure choreography.
