Scholz, Uwe

Uwe Scholz was born on December 31, 1958 in Seeheim-Jugenheim, Hesse, Germany. He died on November 21, 2004 in Berlin, Germany.

During his short life, this former wunderkind created over 100  ballets, including major stage successes such as Die Schöpfung, Die  Grosse Messe and Bruckner 8. Scholz was regarded as a sensitive, highly  musical artist with a fine sense of humor, but again and again, he was  plagued by an excruciating perfectionism, self-doubts, and fears. At  times, they made work impossible for him.  

“Sometimes the great artist’s path  does not lead to laurel-wreathed solitude, but to deep despair,” writes  the ballet critic Klaus Geitel looking back on Scholz’s life. The film  Soulscapes is a highly personal, moving portrait of Uwe Scholz, who died  on November 21, 2004, at the age of 45. In one of his last interviews  with the director Günter Atteln, Scholz talks about himself and his work  with an unprecedented openness. “I’m drawn to symphonic music from the  Classical and Romantic periods. I simply need these soulscapes.” Uwe  Scholz

If the 19th century is that of romanticism, the entry into the new century is synonymous of modernity! It was a few decades later that it would be assigned, a posteriori, the name of “neo-classical”.

The Ballets Russes paved the way for what would become known as: neo-classical. Back then, the term “modern ballet” was frequently used to define this renewal of aesthetics: a savvy blend of tradition and innovation, which each choreographer defined in their own way.

Parcours

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
