Chiara Ajkun- The Originals

This collection brings together the extraordinary art by Chiara Ajkun, one of the most influential choreographers of the century whose works form a pillar of innovative dance across 5 continents. 

The Originals is the signature repertory of the Ajkun Ballet Company.


“There is something incredible in the opportunity to bring to the stage your own art, with no restrictions, no audience scores, only your imagination and the emotions you hope to share” - Chiara Ajkun

Steeped in influences by artists of the 20th century, Chiara’s artistic vision was shaped by the classics and has evolved into contemporary ballets because of her inborn desire to experiment and innovate. She writes the stories to create passionate ballets inspired by historical facts, legends, unique music and close relationships with the dancers. 

Chiara Ajkun has distinguished herself for creating ballets marked by a breath and boldness of vivid imagination.

Chiara Ajkun – Drama 

Reshaping the idea of theatrical, Chiara Ajkun’s original art challenges conventional notions of dance and adds movie flavor to her creations. Her visually stunning shows portray real feelings and fragility of humans, and at times, touch intimate issues in the actuality of contents.

Chiara Ajkun – Dance

The rich physicality of Chiara Ajkun choreography underlines fascinating characters and triggers the emotional and intellectual responses that art can evoke: reflections on personal experiences and broaden social contexts. Minimalistic décor leaves dance at the center of the stage.

Chiara Ajkun - Resonate 

Playing with symmetry and perspective, isolated and coordinated motions, Chiara Ajkun shifts dance movement to emotions in daring variations, orchestrated ensembles and eloquent pas de deux created, researched and molded on the dancer’s bodies.
