About the work

Floating cows and an unbridled joy of movement

This full-length ballet in eleven crazy scenes doesn’t have a plot. The main object: a cow. Experience the return to the Grosse Bühne of the humorous absurdity and joy of movement created by the Swedish enfant terrible of the ballet world. A piece in which even the stage elements are used choreographically. A moving installation with surprising visual moments.

Ekman questions traditional ballet d’action, which he cleverly contrasts with ‹Cow›, a piece that is as uplifting as it is moving and lives from its unleashing of emotions and silence.

About the work

NEW! Digital bookstall

Together with our dramaturgy team, Basel’s arts centre Bider and Tanner has been curating the bookstall for our performances for many years. The wide range of books, CDs, DVDs, catalogues and even sheet music is now available 24/7 in the online shop. It’s worth taking a regular look.

Extra Wochen festival 20.08. to 03.10.21

Header Extra Wochen

We were unable to show the nine performances as much as we would have liked in recent months; ‹Cow› was one of them. We will be staging all of them during our ‹Extra Wochen› festival in the space of just a few weeks. The festival runs from 20 August to 3 October. With a cocktail bar, BBQ, ice cream and lots more. Tickets go on sale on 10 June 2021.
