JSLN - Theatre Bath

JSLN Dance Company was founded in 2012 by Sören Niewelt and Jessica Larbig in Berlin and has gained an international reputation, performing refreshing neoclassical works around Germany and Asia.

JSLN DANCE COMPANY - Theatre Bath“Variations of Pointe” is an exciting new triple bill encompassing all aspects of ballet: grace, elegance and entertainment with something for everyone.

The first piece in our triple bill is Niewelt’s adaptation of Fokine’s Petrouchka from the time of the Imperial Russian Ballet to music by Stravinsky. Our story is set inside a magical puppet workshop where the marionettes come to life and is a dramatic tale of love and jealousy between a beautiful ballerina doll and her admirers.

Our second piece is for everyone, whether you’re a ballet lover or not. We bring you the antics of René Artois and his friends working to thwart Herr Flick and his compatriots in Allo Allo translated into dance and guaranteed to have you rolling around in your seats with laughter.

Our third piece, Transitions of (I)dentity follows from JSLN’s success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015. The tale of The Soul Searcher is extended beyond the inner struggle of who she is, who she wants to be and the constraints of society upon her. The Soul Searcher has come out of the first transition with self-knowledge and passes her knowledge to others, influencing their choices. The journey through the soul searcher’s transitions of identity is brought to life through beautiful pared down, elegant and pure movements of neo-classical ballet to the music of Vivaldi and promises to be a feast for the senses.

As a part of our tour, we are also bringing our hugely popular workshops for all ages from schoolchildren to senior citizens in care homes as well as behind the scenes events at venues the company will be performing at.
