Besides The Art of not looking back there was performed a second piece that day which even had its world Premiere on the 21. April: Erde. Nacho Duato who is going to leave the Staatsballett after this season. Except for the last scene it was very quite minimalistic too. Not in terms of the number of dancers who performed but the decoration was spare. The light and fog were used instead. The funny thing is - when I look at the photos I had taken that day it does not look that way at all. Some of them even look a bit epic, some remind of paintings from Goya and others of Art Deco (Light and colours).
