Four exciting choreographies about women and men, about order and spontaneity

4 Elements is a contemporary ballet introducing international choreographies by the most exceptional choreographers. Ballet NdB worked for the first time with one of the most acclaimed personalities of contemporary ballet – Nacho Duato. His choreography Gnawa is an impressive show with music typical of the North African region and the adjoining Mediterranean. Gnawa is full of dancing and musical power, sensuous elegance, organic rhythm of the Mediterranean and plastic and dynamic choreography by Nacho Duato.

During this evening you can also see two extraordinary choreographies by the genius Jiří Kylián, Sarabande and Falling Angels. Male and female elements are presented the masterful compositions of each title. Falling Angels shows women, dancers, their ambition for perfection and their subjection to the female psyche in different life situations. On the other hand, Sarabande is a purely male affair. The choreographer, in some respects, chauvinistically views male aggression, vulnerable sensitivity and civility, exploring their sexuality, feelings of worthlessness, importance… and stupidity.

Last but not least, during this ballet evening the original work by Lukáš Timulák, Hidden Order, is represented, where the author deals with the structure of our being, life in a world of visible and invisible patterns.
