Haunted by the memory of Nijinsky, like many choreographers before him, Marco Goecke is back with a piece named after one of the 20th century’s greatest dancers.
Since its premiere in June 2016, the powerful biopic so beautifully performed by the Gauthier Dance Company has been met with standing ovations time and time again.
The Monaco Dance Forum will be showcasing the latest offering by a choreographer it has been following for over a decade now, and who was awarded its “Nijinsky Prize” for best emerging choreographer back in 2006.
Nijinsky will be performed on December 14 and 15 at the Salle Garnier of the Monte-Carlo Opera, starting at 8 pm.
On December 16 and 17, the Ballets will be performing Viva Momix Forever, a production of particular interest to a younger audience, at the Salle Prince Pierre at the Grimaldi Forum.
This was created in 2015 to celebrate Momix’s 35th anniversary, and it’s with a spectacular collection of his most iconic and significant choreographies that Moses Pendleton, charismatic Creator and Artistic Director of the company, intends to emphasise this fundamental goal.
Momix is a company of dancer-illusionists based in Washington, Connecticut, founded in 1981 by the well-known choreographer. The new performance is a mix of brilliant beautiful choreographies, new creations and masterpieces of the company’s history: from Momix Classics, Passion, Baseball, Opus Cactus, Lunar Sea, to the recent Botanica and the latest great success of Alchemia.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
