In this piece I continue my collaboration with the Japanese dancer Takashi Ueno, who has become one of the most important dancers of recent years. His power on stage and the poetry of his movements can be admired in my pieces "Si je meurs laissez le balcon ouvert" ("If I die leave the balcony open"), "Pas de Deux", "Cantatas" and most recently as a guest on "An Evening with Judy". In this new show "Songs For Takashi", I wanted to put him in contact with the music of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The music of this period, which comes from Spain, will be sung by Victoria de los Angeles (on a recording). The idea for this unusual combination emerged during rehearsals for my last piece, "Quartet". - Raimund Hoghe

Raimund Hoghe was born in Wuppertal and began his carrier writing celebrity portraits for the German newspaper "Die Zeit". From 1980 to 1990, he worked as dramatist for Pina Bausch's Tanzetheater Wuppertal and was complicit in her work. Since 1989 he has produced shows for various dancers and actors. In 1992 he began a collaboration with the artist Luca Giacomo Schulte, who remains his collaborator today. In 1994 he produced his first solo, "Meinwarts". This, with "Chambre Séparée" (1997) and "Another Dream" (2000) which followed, formed his 20th century trilogy. He lives in Dusseldorf and has won various prizes.
