Land of Darkness / Land of Light


A work where contemporary dance meets classical music. Death and the Maiden, the famous string quartet by Franz Schubert, inspired us to express our personal and our collective encounter with life and death.

The piece leads us to reflect on our relationship to fear, loss and decay; on the embrace of light with darkness; on the infinite attraction of light and on the power of life.
