In September, Marco Goecke’s ballet Der Liebhaber will be presented as a substitute performance.

In the Irish writer Oscar Wilde’s literary tales, satire and social criticism conjoin with poetry. His parables all have one thing in common: They show people in all their kindness and cruelty, in their egotism and their empathy. The search for happiness, and above all for love, is a recurring theme. Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s fairy-tales, stories and poems, Marco Goecke combines the sensuality of the body in motion with an empathetic contemplation of human life and coexistence in his new creation. With his distinctive dance vocabulary, he give us precisely drawn insight into his characters’ inner worlds and, not least, into his own thoughts and emotions.
