About DANCE FOR ALL

A workshop for people from 9-99 who love to dance. Everybody can dance – and dance is for everybody! Eric Gauthier wants to motivate people not only to watch dance but to get moving. Following a joint warm-up, he will work on a short choreography - and make the participants explore a whole new body feeling.

DETAILS

Designed for everyone - specifically for non-dancers - all levels/all ages. Comfortable clothing for movement, including socks.

About ERIC GAUTHIER

It only took Eric Gauthier a few years to make it from charismatic soloist of the Stuttgart Ballet to high-profile international choreographer and director of one of Germany's most successful companies. The German Dance Prize »Future« 2011 in the category choreography for Gauthier himself as well as the German Theatre Prize THE FAUST 2011 and 2013 for Gauthier Dance mark the reputation the company of currently 16 dancers has gained since 2007. In the critics' survey 2012/13 of the German specialist magazine tanz, Eric Gauthier was twice nominated as Dancer of the Year – for the solo I Found A Fox Marco Goecke had created for him. Recent kudos include the listing among the "Great Hopes" 2016 in the new yearbook of tanz and the prize for Best Duet at the St. Petersburg DANCE OPEN Festival 2016 for his piece Punk Love.

Top companies worldwide have taken Gauthier's works into their repertoire – including the Staatsballett Berlin, the St. Petersburg Mariinsky Ballet, the Stuttgart Ballet, Scapino Ballet Rotterdam or Het Nationale Ballet Amsterdam. Devised by Gauthier and produced by Theaterhaus Stuttgart, COLOURS International Dance Festival 2015 created a stir in the international dance world. The second edition of the biennial event takes place from July 6 to 23, 2017.

As the son of a leading Alzheimer's researcher, Eric Gauthier has acquired an awareness for social issues early on. With the Gauthier Dance Mobile, the company brings contemporary dance to youth centres, hospitals or to old people's homes. Eric Gauthier was awarded the Order of Merit of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg and is a member of the board of trustees of the Alzheimer's Foundation Baden-Wuerttemberg.
