In the week of 15th – 19th May, Elisabeth will be teaching professional class at DOCK11 in Berlin.

Elisabeth’s class aims at preparing an articulate, attentive and curious body to move with individual instinct through precise alignment, flow of weight, use of time and dynamic playfulness. By introducing exploratory tasks as well as set material, the positive and energetic environment will encourage you to discover your body’s full potential through facility, strength, efficiency and a creative mind. The class will furthermore invite you to enhance your perception of yourself and others in order to open the space for a powerful visceral experience.

The piece BAL is inspired by the lives of two legendary figures of Luxembourgish folk dancing, Josephine and Claudine Bal. Born in Luxembourg in the 1920s, the sisters Bal have developed Luxembourgish folk dancing into a highly theatricalised form and, with their company, the Ballet National Folklorique du Luxembourg, have enchanted audiences both in Luxembourg and abroad. The creation is based on an extensive documentation collected in a series of international archives as well as on unique testimonials by contemporaries of the family Bal and former dancers of the troupe. Further collaborations with archivists from around the world have made it possible to reconstruct fragments of the original repertoire, which it will be a rare treat to experience again after more than forty years since the company’s disbandment. With this, BAL offers a rare glimpse of an extraordinary luxembourgish cultural heritage that is largely lost.

The piece will be supported by an exhibition of rare historical photographs that document the sisters’ early life and gradual success.
