Michael Clark began his training at the Royal Ballet School and reached his artistic maturity during the post-punk scene of the early 1980s. From there he skillfully navigated through the London sub-culture and placed his post-modern ballet reduction in an artistic cosmos, whose biting social criticism worked with subversive humour, stark flaws and intellectual edge. Clark’s development then continued backwards from post-punk to modernism to neo-Classicism. Through it all he stayed true to his close association with avant-garde fashion, pop music and visual art. His strict geometric choreography makes music visible without fear of symmetry. In this case it’s songs by Scritti Politti, Sex Pistols and Jarvis Cocker’s project Relaxed Muscle that add up with the anarchic wit of a neoclassical punk to a visually striking dance experience.

Film-Special: Michael Clark recommends »HAIL THE NEW PURITAN« [Fr] 15.08. 10:30pm

»There is nothing in dance quite like a work by Michael Clark. Each piece he makes is as unmistakable as a Jackson Pollock painting or a Warhol screen print.« Telegraph   
»They’re ravishing… By the end, Clark’s focused exercises have developed their own punk flourish.« Independent
