For the Stuttgart Ballet's tour to Beijing in 2019, Friedemann will be dancing his critically acclaimed role of Onegin on the opening night on 1st November. He is looking forward to perform this masterpiece by John Cranko for the Chinese audience, and to being back on stage in China after nearly three years.
Following Onegin with Stuttgart Ballet in November, Friedemann will be back in Beijing again on 1st December, on this occasion as guest artist of the National Ballet of China, to reprise the role of Albrecht in Giselle with Qimin Wang as the tragic heroine. It will be the first time Friedemann performs this beloved ballet classic with the National Ballet of China.
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.
