Georg Reischl

The dance training of Austrian Georg Reischl began in the 1980s with Rosa Hartlieb in Salzburg, after which he was admitted to the Ballet School of the Vienna Opera under the direction of Michael Birkmeyer. In 1993, his dancing career began with Liz King in Heidelberg. He then danced with Scapino Ballet Rotterdam from 1995 to 1999.

Georg Reischl left Rotterdam to join Ballet Frankfurt, where he danced in William Forsythe's repertoire and worked as a choreographer. After Ballet Frankfurt closed, Reischl continued with the newly formed The Forsythe Company.

Scapino Ballet Rotterdam had not forgotten Reischl. He regularly created work with the Rotterdam ensemble, including the well-received Insert the start from and State disrupted that was part of TWOOLS 3 in 2000. He also created Temporary Spaces, set to music by Michiel Jansen.

Temporary Spaces - Georg Reischl.jpg

Georg Reischl's choreographies do not tell a linear story. They are abstract and highly energetic and capture the imagination with their clear structuring, intensity and eye for detail. The work is emotive and always has something unpredictable about it. Reischl does not shy away from experimentation, but he knows the tradition and the repertoire and always lets those too resonate in his work.
