The Artistic Director and House Choreographer of the Zürich Ballet, Christian Spuck, is among many other things an incredible storyteller. Never one to shy away from dramatic subjects or complicated plot lines, he has built an extensive repertoire and reputation on his ability to extract and distil prominent themes of a literary work and express them articulately through physical narrative. Each of his productions throws a curve ball to the traditional ballet status quo.
