Ederson Rodrigues Xavier, Masahiro Yanagimoto, choreography, dans / Shunske Sato, viool / Shuann Chai, piano

Ederson Rodrigues Xavier, Masahiro Yanagimoto, choreography, dans / Shunske Sato, viool / Shuann Chai, piano
Classical chamber music and contemporary dance, two styles that don’t appear to mix. But pianist Shuann Chai and choreographer Ederson Rodrigues Xavier have created a new performance where contrasts are brought together. Based on music for violin and piano by famous Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, the contrasts in this dramatic music are put under a magnifying glass. In Prokofiev’s music, beautiful etheric sounds go together with a troubling feeling that lingers. Violence and freedom, a bitter taste that also tastes sweet. Fairy Tales & Nightmares brings it all together in a performance filled with exciting contemporary dance and classical music.
For this event you need an extra ticket € 7,50 (to purchase at the cash desk on the day of the event).
