Part of the From Russia with love triptych

The Greek National Opera presents Igor Stravinsky's singular ballet Le Chant du Rossignol choreographed by Marco Goecke on GNO TV.

Marco Goecke's choreography for Le Chant du Rossignol is like a song of movements. A song in a cage, outside, in the wind, in the rain. A silent song in the earth, in a little wooden box. Fluttering, fidgeting, twitching and spasming. Whoever watches a Marco Goecke ballet for the first time is inevitably astonished; the choreographer virtually attacks the audience with movement - with unusual movement, for in contrast to classical en pointe or modern ballet, in Goecke's work, above all, we see the torso and its extremities in sheer turmoil. In Goecke's ballets, the focus is no longer the beautiful legs. Arms and hands, which until now were rounded daintily or stretched out casually, are suddenly no longer the formulaic complement above the more active lower half of the body. Instead, a wholly new universe of movement evolves around head and torso. Very soon, islands of meaning appear from within this nervy river; what initially seemed to be restless suddenly demands to be recognised and understood and wants to be integrated. When asked to put the essence of his choreography in a nutshell, Goecke said: "Tragoùdi, Èros, Thànatos".
