Gauthier Dance, founded by Canadian dancer and choreographer Eric Gauthier, brings its internationally acclaimed company to the capital. Based in Stuttgart, Germany, Gauthier Dance presents a Mixed Program including Johan Inger’s duet Now & Now, Nacho Duato’s Bach Duet and Mauro Bigonzetti’s Cantata. Gauthier was an apprentice in The National Ballet of Canada when its then artistic director Reid Anderson left to direct the Stuttgart Ballet and invited Gauthier to join him there. In the early 2000s Gauthier began creating his own choreography and in 2007 established his company, paired with the Stuttgart Theaterhaus. Since then, Gauthier Dance has received acclaim for the technical skill, charisma and individuality of its dancers and the energy and creativity of its repertoire. Chosen Hoffnungsträgerin (Bearer of Hope) by Tanz magazine in 2016, Gauthier is an exciting voice in the current European dance scene.

Mixed Program was featured as an event highlight in the March/April 2017 issue of The Dance Current.
