my body falls lighter

STAATSTHEATER KASSEL | MACIEJ KUŹMIŃSKI

There was dancing in the desert, somewhere ancient, alien, on the broken architecture of a lost civilization. It was a dance at the edge of becoming and unbeing, in that liminal space where it is hoped that a glimpse of the singularity might be possible against the backdrop of night and starlight. And the whisper of a wish, to fall, but fall lighter, from the tightrope of time.

Choreography as philosophy with the biographical memory of the body, staged in a visually stunning and poetic way.

Premiere 29.04 in Staatstheater Kassel, Germany

My body falls lighter is Maciej Kuźmiński's first collaboration with an Orchestra.
