A co-production by Staatsballett Karlsruhe & media artist Jonas Denzel

Watch out! The dancers of the Staatsballett Karlsruhe swarm out and turn the city into a stage. Media artist Jonas Denzel uses his beambike to project various choreographies in the city. It is his first collaboration with the ballet company of the Badisches Staatstheater, whose members appear to be balancing taller than life size on window frames, climbing a church tower or filling a grey building with colourful choreography as if it had been built just for this purpose. From 28 April to 26 May, the projections can be experienced every Thursday at various locations in Karlsruhe.

Always on Thursdays at 9:30 pm:
28.4. Badisches Staatstheater am NEUEN ENTREE, Hermann-Levi-Platz 1, 76137 Karlsruhe
5.5. Church of St. Stephan, Erbprinzenstr. 14, 76133, Karlsruhe
12.5. House facade Sophienstraße 250, 76185 Karlsruhe
19.5. Wolfgang-Rihm-Forum Karlsruhe, Wolfartsweierer Str. 7, 76131 Karlsruhe
26.5. Church of St. Stephan, Erbprinzenstr. 14, 76133, Karlsruhe
[Program may be subject to change]

Ballet of the City was supported by the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe 2021 project support program for media art.
