Think Big 2018 Artists’ residency programme

World premieres

Marioenrico D’Angelo (DE/IT), Lucyna Zwolinska (DE/PL), Yotam Peled (DE/IL)

The journey continues. After a year’s hiatus in which we caught up with previous Think Big participants, the artists’ residency programme jointly hosted by the ballet of the Hanover State Opera and the TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL festival continues afresh. Some 70 applicants vied for a place in the sixth edition of the programme, designed to foster young talents and give upcoming choreographers the chance to work with a large ensemble. From these applicants, the jury, consisting of dance and theatre studies specialist Dr. Katja Schneider as the guest juror, Hanover’s ballet director Jörg Mannes and festival director Christiane Winter, selected the three participants for this year: Yotam Peled, a Berlin-based Israeli choreographer and acrobat who has previously appeared at the festival as a freelance dancer in 2015’s Think Big as well as with the Cooperativa Maura Morales; the Saarbrücken-based Polish choreographer Lucyna Zwolinska, until recently a dancer with the Susanne Linke Company; and Marioenrico D’Angelo from Italy, formerly a soloist with the ballet of the Saarland State Theatre and also based in Saarbrücken. Together with the nine-person ensemble engaged for the project, these three young artists will present the short choreographies they created in the four intensive weeks of their residency in Hanover. This evening, then, is a showcase for diversity and experimentation.
