Variations of Pointe II is a new triple bill program. It includes stunning Repertoire Ballet, a hilarious new age twist inspired by Austin Powers as well as Niewelt's new and breathtaking neo-classical creation ''Consequential Gaps''. The dancers come from Scotland, England, Ireland, France, Hungary and Germany and this international cast of stars will move you with every step they take.
In the first part the audience will see sections of famous, yet not widely seen classics such as ''Le spectre de la Rose'', ''La Péri'' and ''La Sylphide''.
The second part of this production will show that Ballet does not have to be bland. Inspired by the Austin Powers movies this new age comedy ballet combines classical technique with fun characters to entertain and introduce new dance audience to ballet.
Niewelt's newest creation ''Consequential Gaps'' finalizes the triple bill. To the music of great composers such as J.S.Bach he creates a new thrilling, extravagant yet breathtakingly clean masterpiece. All that is left after forcing his team of dancers to the limit of the music will be the consequence. Will it be enough to close the gap between stage and audience?
