Ed Wubbe

Artis­tic leader and chore­o­g­ra­pher Scapino Ballet

It’s adven­tur­ous, it’s trend­set­ting,
it’s big! And it’s ballet!

Scapino Bal­let is one of the lead­ing dance ensem­bles in the Nether­lands. Most of it’s exclu­sive reper­toire is made by Ed Wubbe, chore­o­g­ra­pher and artis­tic leader of Scapino.
For­get every­thing you thought bal­let was about. Ed Wubbe has remod­eled the image of bal­let esthet­ics and turned it into dance not to be missed. Since 1990 he has build on a reper­toire that is com­pletely dif­fer­ent and deeply inspir­ing.
Hap­pi­ness and sad­ness, black and white, right and wrong –  it is these con­tra­dic­tions that make his work so allur­ing and excit­ing. His dancers are never just  forms but always warm and human.

Scapino bal­let has become more than dance under Ed Wubbe’s lead­er­ship: he designs the­atri­cal scenes by work­ing  with top design­ers, com­posers, archi­tects and  DJ’s&VJ’s that  con­nect his work to  all aspects of life. Ed Wubbe is often inspired by the icons of Euro­pean cul­ture like Romeo & Juliet, Tchaikovsky and Orpheus. His abstract dance pieces are put his into these asso­cia­tive themes.
