Delight – Part II

Open Spaces | Tanzfabrik Berlin / Wedding

Production Details / Press Releases

To believe that each surrender would bring upon six snakes.

»Delight, Part II«is the second part in a trilogy that draws its inspiration from the painting »The Garden of Earthly Delights« by 15th century painter Hieronymus Bosch. Following a recent renewal of enthusiasm for dancing – a dance renaissance – this choreography aims to integrate different dichotomies such as pleasure/pain, predator/prey and heaven/hell. With giddiness and awkwardness, the performers enter ancient mythologies such as the story of Adam and Eve as well as nymph lore in order to seriously consider an aesthetic of delight.
