PICASSO`S BALLERINA

Choreographer | World Premiere
Music: Ígor Stravinsky

Remi Wortmeyer, resident choreographer of the HET National Ballet, comes back to the Ballet de Catalunya with a new creation, this time in a large format and based on real events in the life of the famous painter Pablo Picasso.

Wortmeyer is inspired and created for the dancers of the company, configuring a unique and personal production after the links born of his first experience in April 2018 with his "Concerto Mondrian".

The story that is represented highlights the love triangle formed by Picasso, his wife Olga, ballerina of the Ballets Russes, and his lover Marie-Theresse. The music is by Stravinsky, composer who worked and collaborated with the Ballets Russes, in the same way that Picasso did, who was invited to design the sets of several of their ballets and where love would be born with Olga Khokhlova, the protagonist which gives its name to this Ballet: Picasso's Ballerina.

Wortmeyer chooses a marked contemporary-neoclassical character, where the pointe shoes are still an essential instrument for the movements of the dancers. At the same time stand out a set design and costumes, with great detail and originality, forming a whole where the demand is palpable from the begining.

All in all, Wortmeyer's main goal is to be able to express emotions with maximum intensity while telling a passionate story with scenes of love, hate and lack of love, with which Picasso's relationships with the women of his family are represented. most intimate environment. It aims at the same time, with this history, to claim the role of women as a fundamental pillar within society and the value of gender equality, a subject of great sensitivity in nowaday's society.
