    Music by Mikael Karlsson Ballet in eleven scenes

    Following the success of »Cacti«, the enfant terrible of the Nordic dance world returns to Dresden for the current season to take a fresh look at a classic work, offer a premiere and develop an installation. Whether flooding the stage with water for »Swan Lake« or filling Stockholm’s Royal Opera House with hay, Ekman’s huge range of brilliantly crazy works always attracts an enthusiastic audience. Surprise, timing and the pure joy of dance are only three of the ingredients in his choreographic cookbook.
