Albrecht was Friedemann’s first ever lead role, and will therefore always hold a special place in his heart. As such, Friedemann is excited to reprise this role in Patrice Bart’s version of Giselle, based on the original choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, with the sublime Polina Semionova and Ballett Zürich on 30 May for one performance only.

Friedemann Vogel for Encens Magazine

Friedemann has always been fascinated by the power of photography to capture the poetry of movement in stillness. Preparing for fashion shoots is not too dissimilar to preparing for a performance; it’s ultimately about channeling emotions through movement, except with a stronger focus on the clothes. Friedemann thoroughly enjoyed this innovative collaboration with the Encens Magazine, for which he wore a range of labels, including Hed Mayner, Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Emporio Armani, Uma Wang, Comme des Garcons and Issey Miyake.

Friedemann has always enjoyed performing widely contrasting work across the dance spectrum, from romantic hero roles like Armand Duval in John Neumeier’s The Lady of the Camellias to more contemporary productions such as the upcoming Stuttgart Ballet premiere of Jiří Kylián’s One of A Kind. Having performed Bella Figura and Forgotten Land- two other critically acclaimed pieces by the world-renowned choreographer -  Friedemann is looking forward to dancing One of A Kind for the opening night on 22 February, with more shows to follow.
