Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

Director : Philippe Cohen
" The dancer spends his life in learning, because he finds the process of dance to be, like life, continually in process."
Merce Cunningham
 
Since its creation in 1962, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève has been exploring the various styles of dance from the 20th Century. Today, under Philippe Cohen's dynamic leadership, the company is following the same artistic direction invested in choreographical creation while keeping close the founding principles of dance.

The numerous rewritings of repertoire pieces by some of the most exciting and breakthrough choreographers are part of this prestige. Composed of 22 classically trained dancers, the company is nowadays one of the leading dance companies on the international scene. Its specificity lays within Philippe Cohen's well-suited choices of dancers and in his high standard artistic vision, leading the company and guest choreographers in a clearly defined direction.

Two pieces are created each year for its Genevan season. Then, as a touring company, it's around the world that the company mostly performs its diverse programs.

Season highlights

 

It is with two performances in Bangkok (Thailand) in September 2020, that Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève should have opened its season. Upon its return to Geneva, the company will present its new program called Hors Cadre from November 21st to 29th, 2020. It will be composed of choreographies by Fana Tshabalala (Better Sun) and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Exhibition).
A new programme will also complete the repertoire at the end of the season, 
Le Sacre². For this evening, which will be premiered in May 2021 in Geneva, Philippe Cohen invites two choreographers well known to the dancers and the public to perform the pieces they created on the theme of The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky. Le Sacre² will thus be composed of choreographies by Andonis Foniadakis (The Rite of Spring) and by Jeroen Verbruggen (Massâcre).
