Solo For Two. Bailarín: Thomas Klein
  • Choreography: Mats Ek
  • Music: Arvo Pärt (Für Alina, For Arinushka, Spiegel im Spiegel)
  • Sets and Costumes: Peder Freiij
  • Light Design: J. Erik O. Berglund

  • World premiered by Cullberg Ballet at Ljusdal, Sweden, March 29th 1996. Premiered by Compañía Nacional de Danza at Teatro de la Zarzuela, Madrid, October 3rd, 2002.

Originally, and under the title of Smoke, this ballet was created for Swedish Television. Revamped and adapted later for stage, Solo For Two is a melancholic love duet, mysterious and strict, considered one of the most admirable examples of the meeting between classical and contemporary dance. This work, premiered now by CND in Spain, describes de very intense communication between a man and a woman with all its emotional and psychological complexity. Both dancers explore human existence and its contradictions. Solo For Two is also an example of the daring creative style of Mats Ek, combining the use of psychological dilemmas with a very subtle sense of humor. The choreographer considers that movement is the best form of individual expression and refuses to accept the aesthetics as a first priority.
