The Danish performance company Hotel Pro Forma and the Swedish electropop duo The Knife will present Tomorrow, in a year, a Darwin electro-opera, on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 January 2010 at the Pallas Theatre in Athens, Greece. The world seen through the eyes of Charles Darwin, the Hotel Pro Forma's striking visuals, The Knife's ground-breaking music and choreography by hip-hop inspired Hiroaki Umeda forms the basis for this new species of electro-opera.

The performance, directed by Ralf Richardt Strøbech and Kirsten Dehlholm, is divided into two parts - analogous to the development and publications of The Origin of Species. The first part of the performance is exploratory. It concentrates on observing the underlying sequences and relationships between image, narrative, movement and music used in the performance. The second part is a synthesis of the material. A completed image and totality emerge, before the performance again mutates and passes into new forms, as happens over time with all things.

An opera singer, a pop singer and an actor perform The Knife's music and represent Darwin, time and nature on stage. Six dancers form the raw material of life and the evolution of movement. Together with the newest technology in light and sound, our image of the world as a place of incredible variation, similarity and unity is re-discovered.

Don't miss the original and groundbreaking electro-opera Tomorrow, in a Year by Hotel Pro Forma at the Pallas Theatre in Athens, Greece.
