Eric Gauthier refuses to stand still
What an outstanding project created by Eric Gauthier! „The Dying Swan“ revisited in 16 new creations: 16 solos by 16 choreographers from all over the world, danced by the 16 dancers of Gauthier Dance//Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart, with music by 16 componists, captured by 16 video artists: This is „The Dying Swans Project“.
How the project started
The initial spark for Eric Gauthier’s Dying Swan’s Project was ignited when Gauthier Dance’s extensive tour program in February and March fell victim to the extended lockdown. Eric Gauthier saw the increasing discouragement in the eyes of his dancers and he realized that he had to do something about it. His “dying swans” needed a new artistic challenge and so The Dying Swans Project was born! Small at first, but it was to get better. A few days later, Gauthier, himself a member of the “be a mover” community, was invited to a talk with Jörg Howe, Head of Global Communication at Daimler AG. When he shared his dream, Howe spontaneously offered him support.
