Dovin-Doven-Dovli…

More ...

On 27 March, at the Rustaveli Theatre, Giorgi Aleksidze Tbilisi Contemporary Ballet Company will present Mariam Aleksidze’s contemporary ballet Dovin-Doven-Dovli…

 

The performance is special and original due to the fact that its choreography is staged to Galaktion Tabidze’s poetry. The dramaturgy of the performance unfolds according to the language of poetry, the word providing an impetus to the movement, the body follows the rhythm, character and nature of the poem. Dovin-Doven-Dovli… - the words that come from the heart in Galaktion’s poem It Will Come… But When? – have no specific explanation, everyone has their own perception of them, just like the performance as a whole.

Giorgi Aleksidze Tbilisi Contemporary Ballet Company, during its third season, will hold its first international tour to Germany!

 

The project Hinter den Grenzen (Beyond Borders) has been selected for funding by the German Music Fund in 2018, when Georgia is the Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The goal of the project is for the Georgian artists of the same generation – poet Rati Amaghlobeli, composer and musician working in Germany Rusudan Meipariani and choreographer Mariam Aleksidze – to create a new literary-musical-choreographic performance which will premiere in Germany. Together with the actors of Giorgi Aleksidze Tbilisi Contemporary Ballet Company, Rusudan Meipariani and members of her ensemble – Georgian musicians working in Germany Nata Meipariani and Giga Khelaia – will participate in the performance. The choreographic performance entitled The Sound of Daira…, which Mariam Aleksidze staged to Rusudan Meipariani’s solo programme for the Tbilisoba festivities in 2017, will also be performed within the framework of the project.

 

Between 8 and 13 November, three performances are planned to be held in the south of Germany. After the performance in Stuttgart, a meeting-discussion between the audience and the creative team will be held, led by culturologist Ulrike Bohne.

 

The German Music Fund and Tbilisi City Hall are the supporters of the project.

 

We wish the company a worthy start in the international arena and new and interesting experiences from the tour!
