Rising Swan takes Michel Fokine’s choreography for The Dying Swan as a point of departure. The revolutionary expressive ballet was first premièred in 1907 by Anna Pavlova. The up and down of the swan, the sheer force of its wings and its resistance to sinking, which Pavlova expressed in her solo, take a new form in Rising Swan. Doris Uhlich brings the choreography into the year 2010, combining it with personal memories of breakups and failures.
