Can an artist constantly renew his commitment to freedom, beauty and aesthetic nuance? Choreographer Martin Schläpfer, who has directed the Ballet am Rhein Düsseldorf since 2009, is a preeminent figure in the European dance world. His creations have been acclaimed for their sheer power and boldness, launching ballet once and for all into the 21st century. As he works on two major choreographies—Alltag, a ballet conceived for him by collaborator Hans van Manen, and Deep Field, a work set to the music of contemporary composer Adriana Hölszky — director Annette Von Wangenheim captures the essence of the artist in his tireless investigations of movement and beauty — as much in his daily life as his creative process.
