The ballet “Ghost Light” deals with isolation and the feelings and fantasies an empty stage may evoke
The Hamburg Ballet was one of the first ballet companies internationally to return to its studios after the first lockdown. Observing a strict hygiene concept, John Neumeier created Ghost Light, a new full-length ballet, for his entire ensemble of 55 dancers. The ballet Ghost Light deals with isolation and the feelings and fantasies an empty stage may evoke.
Developed in fragments using small groups of dancers and under the constraints imposed by Covid-19, the choreography reflects situations, fears, relationships, memories and emotions experienced during the pandemic. John Neumeier dedicates this work to his dancers.
