20 years of Richard Wherlock

Available online at noon


26. März – Video ‹Israel Special›
2. April – Video ‹Nordic Special›
9. April – Jubiläumsvideo

Dance is a fleeting art form.  As part of ‹Ballett auf allen Bühnen› we celebrate Richard Wherlock's 20 years at Theater Basel in three video contributions. Look forward to an ‹Israel Special› on 26 March and a ‹Nordic Special› on 2 April – two thematic focal points that have emerged over the years in Wherlock's work with guest choreographers from Israel, Finland and Sweden. And to top it off, we will be showing an anniversary video of Richard Wherlock's work over the last 20 years.
