Spring Waters

By choreographer Asaf Messerer
Music: Sergei Rachmaninoff, ‘Spring Waters’

Created in 1959 by Asaf Messerer, choreographer and former chief soloist with the celebrated Bolshoi Ballet, Springs Waters is an energetic and ethereal pas de deux that conjures up the first days of spring. Recognized for its highly athletic factor, this short piece features the agility of Les Grands Ballets’ dancers in a choreography that is literally astounding.


By Marcos Morau with Lorena Nogal and Marina Rodriguez
Music: Miguel Poveda, Jose Galván, Manolo Sevilla & Rafael Rodriguez, Paco de Lucia

Fukuoka presents the essence of language that choreographer Marcos Morau has been developing over the last few years with his company, La Veronal. For this piece, Morau brings a flamenco influence together with an abstract energy, rejecting any narrative discourse and allowing the two performers to completely drown in the shape. The contradiction of flamenco and contemporary forms, the clash of two worlds that nourish and complement each other: an exercise in style that brings the public closer to the universe of the choreographer.

REQUIEM, 5th movement

By choreographer Andrew Skeels
Music : Johannes Brahms

A monumental work, the German Requiem of Johannes Brahms is an elegy created following the loss of his mentor, composer Robert Schumann, and of his mother. Inspired by the solemn beauty of the piece, choreographer Andrew Skeels presents a poignant work that explores the profundity of human connections.

”The dance is inspired by Brahm’s text for the 5th movement, which speaks of the importance of human connection. The text conjures images of how vital touch, empathy and bonding are to the human state. These states are explored through two characters in this section. ”- Andrew Skeels, choreographer, on the 5th Movement of Requiem
