Jean-Guillaume Weis (dancer with Tanztheater Pina Bausch, Mark Morris Dance Group and Tanztheater Basel, among others) has decades of experience as a dancer, choreographer and performer at home and abroad. This will be the first time that a Luxembourg dance company "Dance Theatre Luxembourg" will present a full-length programme in this form.
In memoriam, musical works by the cellist and composer Lisa Berg (1978-2017).
Choreography: Jean-Guillaume Weis.
A tribute to the artistic work of Lisa Berg (1978-2017). Three dancers meet the compositions of the talented musician. Experience a dance creation in which poetry, emotions, love, outbursts of hope, comfort, sadness but also joy and humour will be in the foreground.
Jean-Guillaume Weis: "Lisa - is a little ode to life. When Lisa passed away, we all felt a great sadness. That moment reminded us how fragile life is. Listening to her music took on a different colour. I immediately felt the need to honour her work and create a choreography to Lisa's music."
Dancers: Anna Senognoeva, Youri de Gussem, Malcolm Sutherland
Lighting: Lutz Deppe
Stage: Trixi Weis
Production: Dance Theatre Luxembourg
Co-production: Grand Théâtre (TDVL), Danz Asbl, Ministère de la Culture
Choreography: Jean-Guillaume Weis
Jean-Guillaume Weis' creative work is based on his thirty years of experience. The choreographer reinvents himself in this choreography. In "Joy", the spectator experiences a style that is increasingly intense, refined and direct. He guides the spectator to direct his gaze towards things that are essential yet also fleeting and intangible. This creation is a form of self-expression, as a sign of the authenticity and identity of the choreographer, who has now evolved a bit in his creative process.
Dancers: Guerin Phan and Amine Miladi.

Choreography: Jill Crovisier
The piece Bolero by Jill Crovisier is the rhythmic and very personal journey of a man who slowly finds his inner voice within himself. Compared to the circle of life, the roller skates become a symbol for the fast progress in our world, for the insecurity and instability it brings, but also for control and perseverance. The dancer will take the audience on an impressive musical journey through Maurice Ravel's work.
Dancer: William Cardoso
