DEATH AND THE MAIDEN
Nominated for a Reumert as “Best Dance Performance of the Year” in 2005.
What we experience is a constant contrast and refreshingly different challenge to a well-known story in the perhaps wildest dance performance of the theatre season. Henrik Lyding, Jyllandsposten, 8 May, 2004.
Death and the Maiden is a political performance based on Ariel Dorfmann’s world famous script. A story about lies, diplomacy, justice and torture – and the meeting between a victim of torture and an executioner.
Brutal, virtuoso – spiced with black humour.
