5 dates, 3 innovative dance pieces. The international co-production 3 Rooms is back after a highly successful run last spring. GNO Ballet Director Konstantinos Rigos enters into creative discourse with two of the dance world’s leading choreographers.
For the first performance of the evening, Rigos presents a new choreography for a piece by Giorgos Koumendakis, The Pedal Tone for a Child. Inspired by Byzantine music, this is a story about choices, youth, tradition, and nature, set in a bleak background.
Petite Mort follows. Set to two of Mozart’s Piano Concertos, and masterfully choreographed by Jiří Kylián of Nederlands Dans Theatre fame, this one's all about our strongest human impulses, such as aggression and sexuality, and pulls no punches. Mozart on steroids.
Last but not least, go gaga with Minus 16, choreographed by Israeli Ohad Naharin. Minus 16 is a performance that combines techno, Israeli music and mambo sounds. Creator of the extraordinary Gaga movement language, Naharin knows how to eliminate the space between dancers and audience.
Mesmerising performances that speak different movement languages come together. Catch them at SNFCC.
