Notes on the performancesOpen 
A poetic dialogue where music and dance are in perfect harmony, and where the artistes’ bodies, almost shaped by the wind, vibrate like cello strings. Pure dance without narration, abstract but profoundly human. Spoerli reveals his “neoclassical and musical” style inspired by Baroque music, and by the Bach Suites. Earth, water and fire were the elements he drew on for the first three; for In den Winden im Nichts (2003) it is air that permeates his choreography for Suites Nos. 2, 3 and 6. Wisps of smoke curl upwards from the solitary item of scenery, and a big ring embraces the 18 movements that make up the three parts of the ballet and acts as their unifier. Coloured by the red, green and blue of the costumes, the different musical and choreographic atmospheres unfold in a succession of solos, pas de deux, and pas de trois, and in ensemble moments for the ballet company, embracing every nuance of the emotions.
