The novella Death in Venice is one of Thomas Mann's masterpieces and is also very popular thanks to Visconti's legendary 1971 film. Valentina Turcu’s ballet drama Death in Veniceis a reinterpretation of Mann's masterpiece set to Mahler's delicate yet passionate music reflecting the deepest emotions and the most complex states of mind. The creative and choreographic imagination is controlled by the eternal movement of the soul and gently enters the vast universe of emotions pulsating with the nearly imperceptible internal power of Eros.

OHAD NAHARIN: decadance
Choreography:
Ohad Naharin

Decadance is the work of the legendary Israeli Ohad Naharin, who has belonged to the ‘crème de la crème’ of modern world dance theatre for several decades. Although Decadance is a special combination of parts of entire works created by Ohad Naharin over the past decades, it is also a new form, since these earlier works are set in an original piece within the directorial line and choreographic structure of the entire evening. Ohad's powerful charisma, very specific geographic and cultural background, unique and original poetics of movement and expressive means in general inform a new spectacle especially for viewers, who have a strong, unusual experience at each performance.

LOL - Trois Gnossiennes / 5 Tangos / Black Cake
Choreography:
Hans van Manen

Van Manen choreographed Trois Gnossiennes as a sensual duet about resignation, trust and harmony in consonance with Erik Satie's magical and melancholy music. 5 Tangos is built on the music of Astor Piazzolla. Highly popular with audiences, this work is charged with a fiery energy. A tango with something extra. Black Cake originated as a work celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Nederlands Dans Theater and is conceived as a festive parody in five parts based on humour – an irresistibly funny black cake.
