On the occasion of the 3rd Biennale Danceeductaion "Heritage Dance" students of the Centre for Contemporary Dance (CCD)will show the 3rd part of the trilogy Shanghai Bolero - Triptyque by French choreographer Didier Théron on 6th March 2012 in Theater Frankfurt Lab.
Originally premiered at the Paris Opera in 1928 in a choreography by Bronislava Nijinska, the Bolero inspired choreographers to multiple interpretations until today. Three aspects inspired Didier Théron to use the Bolero by Maurice Ravel in his choreographic work in Shanghai Bolero – Triptyche: its clear compositional principle, the cultural dimension of the work and its presence in the collective memory.

From the 5th to the 29th of June 2012 the choreographic results of a unique one-year exchange process between three universities will tour across Europe.
This exceptional project is funded by the European Commission.
55 students from three universities will work together with choreographers Georg Reischl and Iván Pérez. A central aspect of the project is the collaboration between music and dance. Two composers from Germany and Spain will contribute their compositions to the artistic process. These works will be performed throughout the tour by the Ensemble De Ereprijs. Both of the composers will be mentored during their creative process by recognized composers César Cano and Wim Boerman.
The uniqueness of Crossover/55/2 internationally mixed lies in the multifaceted and multidimensional goals that this project will build and nurture. Besides the creation of complete works, the intensive interdisciplinary involvement and the successful creation of an international network between students, artists, scientists, teachers and the public are both goals and justifications for this project.
