The new triple bill PURE BLISS takes its title from the company premiere of Johan Inger’s Bliss. For this large-scale ensemble piece, the Swedish choreographer uses the legendary "Köln Concert" by jazz pianist Keith Jarrett; music that many consider to be the epitome of virtuoso improvisation. Rather than translating the music one-to-one into movement, it is the feeling of Jarrett's iconic music – free, soaring and ecstatic - that Inger translates into sublime dance, sending not only listeners, but audience members into a state of bliss.

PURE BLISS could just as easily be called "An Evening with Johan Inger," as all three pieces are by this extremely versatile choreographer. The evening opens with a revival of his Out of Breath, a stirring piece that explores the fine line between life and death. In this intense chamber piece, six dancers literally run into, against and over a large wall, trying to overcome it, scale it or hurl themselves off it. These searing emotional images are underpinned by the - in more ways than one - breathtaking music of Jakob Ter Veldhuis and Félix Lajkó.

The evening concludes with a world premiere by Inger. For his first work for the Stuttgart Ballet, Inger plans a one-act comedy based on the famous classical ballet The Sleeping Beauty. This collaboration between Inger - whose roots lie in classical ballet as well as contemporary dance - and the dancers of the Stuttgart Ballet - who are known for their openness, versatility and passionate commitment to choreographers - is sure to be a fruitful one.
