The Swedish DANCE MIRACLE that changed the WORLD


In 1920, art dealer and visionary Rolf de Maré created Les Ballets Suédois in Paris together with the choreographer Jean Börlin. Their aim was to combine theatre, art, poetry, music and mime in one dance company. Les Ballets Suèdois were at the forefront of the avantgarde, and a 100 years later it is still thought of as a ground-breaking dance and art phenomenon.

SKATING RINK

Jean Börlin’s legendary Skating Rink is set on a working-class estate. The residents are meeting up at the skating rink. Their movements are mechanical, like the machines on a factory assembly line. Together with Fernand Léger, Börlin created iconic scenes with set design, costumes and choreography inspired by Cubism.

LA BOÎTE À JOUJOUX

In cooperation with the choreographer Jean-Guillaume Bart and the artist Bea Szenfeld, the Royal Swedish Ballet have created an entirely new work inspired by the legendary La Boîte à Joujoux. When the it was first performed in 1921, critics heralded is a new art form. It was neither ballet nor music – it was better! The Royal Ballet brings life to the toys in the box and invite the audience to a wonderful world of play to music by Claude Debussy.

SCENES FROM MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Since time immemorial, on bright summer nights, we have dreamt of the origin of everything around us … nature is full of forces. The line between the world of humans and the realm of the supernatural grows thinner as the bottle gets emptier … Tradition plays on our senses, the world changes and suddenly we are not sure – is it all a dream? Alexander Ekman created the rowdy, eclectic success Midsummer Night's Dream for the Royal Ballet in 2015, and we can now experience excerpts from it again! Why Midsummer? The very first ballet that was staged by Les Ballets Suédois after it was created by Jean Börlin in 1920 was La Nuit de Saint Jean.
