JOHN NEUMEIER: A UNIQUE ARTIST
His name is inseparably linked with Germany's cultural history. John Neumeier's artistic work has influenced several generations of dancers and forever broadened the perspective on art, dance and theatre in Germany.
With the help of hundreds of photographs, some of which have never been published before, we look back on half a century of relentless, artistic vision-driven, unique work by this dancer, ballet director and exceptional choreographer. This pictorial biography pays tribute to John Neumeier, his creativity and his unforgettable, magnificent ballets. The photographs demonstrate the various creative phases of the choreographer and his company.
BALLET HISTORY IN POWERFUL IMAGES
Largely supported by the strong photographs, John Neumeier gives assessments and very personal statements on each decade of his work. Through images and accompanying texts, readers and viewers are taken on a journey through half a century of European dance and cultural history, with a special focus on the world premieres and tours.
