2022-2023 Ballet Season
As we welcome Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, La Bâtie-Festival de Genève invites the Geneva Ballet to the Château Rouge main stage with the revival of two original works by the Belgian choreographer.
For the opening of the season of the Geneva Ballet, Skid by Damien Jalet, the company’s new associate artist, and the world premiere of Ukiyo-e by its director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
After meeting the Shaolin monks in 2007, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui decided to work closely with the temple to develop a joint project for which he created the choreography and danced with the monks himself.
The Ballet of the Grand Théâtre de Genève
In 1962, the Grand Théâtre de Genève acquired a permanent ballet company, made up of 22 artists, offering two original choreographic creations per season. Collaborating with choreographers of international renown, over the course of its performances, it has built a worldwide reputation for itself. Today, whilst the premieres are always held in Geneva, the Geneva Ballet frequently performs outside Switzerland (France, Italy, United States, Russia, Australia, China, Brazil, South Africa…). From the 22–23 Season, the Ballet is under the management of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
