During December 2011 and January 2012 Chris will undertake a guest contract at the Bern Ballet, Switzerland. He will dance in Cathy Marston’s new full length work Ein Winternachtstraum based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights Dream.
Marston has moved the action to a deserted, dilapidated amusement park and a warm summer night is now the middle of winter.
Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream played live, will now include the Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra, performed (on the turntables) by Gabriel Prokofiev, the grandson of Sergei Prokofiev.
Performances will be at the Bern StadtTheater.
