Partner schools are invited to send their best students to Lausanne to present a one-of-a-kind collaboration. 50 students from around the world will come to Beaulieu Theatre independently of the competition to learn – in 8 days – a new piece (Pulse) created by the renowned choreographer Goyo Montero for this special occasion. The dancers will then perform their work during the Interlude as a world premiere!
A demonstration/rehearsal is open to public (free of charge) on Wednesday January 31st, 2018 from 6.15pm to 6.45pm at the Beaulieu Theater.
This project is supported by the Fonds pour l’Équipement Touristique de la Région Lausannoise(FERL), the Rudolf Nureyev Foundation, the Friends of the Prix de Lausanne and Dance West.
Goyo Montero is a 1994 Prize Winner and has been collaborating with the Prix de Lausanne for many years. He is the Director and main Choreographer of the Nuremberg Ballet. For the Choreographic Project, he collaborated with the composer Owen Belton and the lighting designer Nicolás Fischtel to create a new piece for this unprecedented project that will be presented to the public as a “world premiere”.
