It was an honour for Friedemann to be featured on the cover of Art Tourist for their latest issue entitled “JOHN” after the iconic choreographer John Cranko who put Stuttgart Ballet on the world map, prompting the culture magazine to cast their spotlight on the Stuttgart-born kammertänzer. In his interview, Friedemann talks about his career, and how performing around the world means the absence of a routine, which has helped keep things fresh for him with every day presenting a new opportunity.
