Everyone is different, everyone plays a part, and they are all united by the commitment to grow into genuine dancer personalities. The dancers of the National Youth Ballet (Bundesjugendballett) present their skills in a ballet featuring them all in their diverse facets: BJB Songbook – What We Call Growing Up. A colorful dance collage of pop songs from different musical styles by Imogen Heap, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Tracy Chapman, and others. The choreographies are the work of a number of guest choreographers including Kristian Lever, Marc Jubete, Sasha Riva, and former BJB dancers. Sensitively directed by Kevin Haigen, a many-faceted tableau emerges on stage – different choreographic styles blend with sounds from several genres, while both the dancers and musicians are equally involved in the action.
