Dorian – a mix of ballet and hiphop by Ernst Meisner and Marco Gerris | Dutch National Ballet

Following the successes of Narnia and GRIMM, Dorian (14+) is the third joint production by choreographers Ernst Meisner and Marco Gerris. For their adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray, the famous book by Oscar Wilde from 1891, the two choreographers have opted for a thriller-like approach, filled with tension and suspense, for adults and adolescents. This time, dancers from Dutch National Ballet will also be joining dancers from the Junior Company and ISH Dance Collective. SUBSCRIBE to our channel for new video’s every week:
