EURO-SCENE LEIPZIG: SULLE SPONDE DEL LAGO – ON THE SHORES OF THE LAKE

FORWARD DANCE COMPANY BY LOFFT – DAS THEATER (LEIPZIG)

As part of euro-scene Leipzig 2022, the FORWARD DANCE COMPANY takes a critical look at one of the most famous works of classical ballet: Swan Lake.

Swan Lake - to the music of Tchaikovsky - is one of the most famous works of classical ballet and thus also representative of a certain body image. Together with the mixed-abled FORWARD DANCE COMPANY by LOFFT - DAS THEATER, choreographer Alessandro Schiattarella takes a critical and personal look at the iconic ballet. What is considered supposedly "normal" or "beautiful"? What mechanisms of exclusion and oppression lie hidden here?
