Dance programme by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Saburo Teshigawara.
Two masters have created new pieces. A dance by Belgian multimedia artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui can contain everything from deep spirituality to comedy. What interests him most is what happens between the dancers. Saburo Teshigawara is one of the world's most prominent choreographers. Everything he creates is aesthetic, beautiful and austere - but also spiritual and subtle. The music in Metamorphosis consists of newly composed electronic music and a capella choir vocals. Both pieces have been newly created for the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
