The students of the Nunes / FLOCK Creation Program
led by Juliano Nunes, Alice Klock and Florian Lochner

At the end of the Nunes/Flock Creation Program, the students will present a work in progress following their intensive with Juliano Nunes, Alice Klock, and Florian Lochner. In this intensive, Juliano Nunes concentrates on the creative process, diving into pushing the boundaries of fusing classical ballet and contemporary dance. A new creation will emerge, serving as a path for dancers to discover their capabilities, focusing on rhythm, partnering, and group work. Flock dancer/choreographer duo Alice Klock and Florian Lochner focus on trust, communication, and the possibilities unlocked through equal partnership. Flock uses their unique approach to non-binary partnering to guide each dancer into new ways of understanding contact and their own physicality within the context of connection. Each participating artist is not asked to fit into a mold, but rather to fully express and explore their personal artistry and craft.

Trained at the Brazilian Dance Conservatory in Rio de Janeiro, Juliano Nunes (b. 1990) furthered his studies at the Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts in Germany with a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts. Joining Companies such as Royal Ballet of Flanders, Leipzig Opera Ballet, Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, and Stuttgart Gauthier Dance, he has worked with numerous choreographers including William Forsythe, Christopher Wheeldon, Hans van Manen, Jiří Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Yuri Grigorovich, Akram Khan, and others. He has received critical acclaim for his own choreography and has created pieces for the Royal Ballet in London, Nederlands Dans Theater 2, Mariinsky Theater, Norwegian National Ballet, Zürich Ballet, Ballet Jazz de Montreal, Acosta Danza, Pennsylvania Ballet, and Atlanta Ballet. He also choreographed for a new Netflix series Tiny Pretty Things and worked with FKA Twigs for a special performance at the Jimmy Fallon Late Night Show.

Alice Klock and Florian Lochner met while serving as dancers and Choreographic Fellows at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. In 2017 they created FLOCK through which they perform their own work internationally and co-create new choreography for film and stage. As a team, they have choreographed for multiple dance companies, universities, and cultural institutions including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Whim W’Him, Ballet Idaho, Seattle Dance Collective, Ballet Arkansas, Emergence, the Goethe Institut, Adaptations Dance Theater, the Alonzo King LINES Ballet BFA, and the 92nd Street Y. Their main focus through 2023 is on creating and touring new FLOCK shows internationally with teams of rotating collaborators. In all of their work, they strive to bring artists and audiences together in environments that are open, dynamic and based on joy.
