The company is presenting a double program, from 11 to 13 June, with the second act of 'Swan Lake' and 'Tongues.'
From 11 to 13 June, Ballet de Barcelona is back on stage with a double program. The Teatre Condal will host the company, which, on one hand, will perform the second act of Swan Lake with a more contemporary approach, reflecting the current times with a gender-equal cast. Swans symbolize beauty, love, trust, and loyalty – qualities that don't belong to any gender. They are adored for their animal qualities and aesthetic appeal, which both genders share. Therefore, in this production, gender norms don't control the cast; instead, the only aspect that matters is the performer's quality.
On the other hand, the company will also interpret Tongues, the new contemporary dance creation inspired by the life and work of Ludwig Wittgenstein, one of the leading philosophers of the 20th century. Tongues is a game of contrasts between extravagant and sensual movements, clarity and darkness, materialism and spirituality. The relationships between characters talk about the frustration of not understanding each other, the fear of being rejected, and the search for the self. Chase Johnsey and Carlos Renedo are the founders of Ballet de Barcelona, who bring you these two productions led by choreographers Anna Ishii, David Rodriguez and Luke Prunty.
Friday’s and Saturday's sessions will start at 8 pm, while Sunday's will be at 6.30 pm. Tickets are 30 euros and can be purchased here.
