L’oiseau De Feu - Danse Infernale, 2015

Event / Performance, Roxy Theater, Basel CH

An interactive performance on the music of the Firebird by Igor Stravinsky. Inspired by an archaic tradition in the town Sursee near Lucerne, the Gansabhauet and the afterlife journey. In the afterlife the light rays have qualities like wisdom, kindness, compassion and intelligence. This light makes visible what is invisible on earth, the Divine nature of all things. The movement language created for this purpose asks for the ratio in the field of modern dances with some pointed punchlines.
