Noverre: Young Choreographers 2019 - Stuttgart BalletCompany Initiatives, Fellowships, & CompetitionsCommissionn/an/aRangesJohn Neumeier, Jiří Kylián, William Forsythe, Uwe Scholz, Christian Spuck, Marco GoeckeSince 1961, the Noverre Society has presented its “Young Choreographers” evenings on a yearly basis and has brought forth some of Europe’s most renowned choreographers – all of whom created their very first ballets for the Society. This platform has been invaluable to the Stuttgart Ballet over the last decades. On average, 80% of the young choreographers per season are dancers from within the company who create works for their colleagues. Almost all of the above mentioned choreographers went on to become resident choreographers of the Stuttgart Ballet, providing the basis for the extremely diverse repertory of the company. In order not to lose this vital creative source Tamas Detrich has found the means to rescue the Young Choreographers Evening and integrated this project into the Stuttgart Ballet. 2019 will feature the first Noverre Young Choreographers Evening by the Stuttgart Ballet.https://www.stuttgart-ballet.de/schedule/a-z/noverre-young-choreographers-2019/
