Kult

An appealing evening of dance with Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’ and Ohad Naharin.

Roy and Ohad

Kult presents two of the leading artists in contemporary dance: the legendary Ohad Naharin and rising star Roy Assaf.

Ohad Naharin is a dance legend and Artistic Director of Israeli dance company Batsheva, one of the world's foremost dance companies. As a choreographer, he has created a unique style based on his own movement philosophy: gaga. Solely for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Ohad Naharin has created a new version of his work, Decadance, called Decadance Gothenburg, an honour for us. Decadance is a work in constant flux; a kind of collage of Ohad Naharin's best work. Decadance Gothenburg is an appealing work that brings the audience closer to the dance and the dancers themselves.

Kult begins with Sacre, a world premiere created by the multi-award winning Israeli choreographer Roy Assaf, to Stravinsky's phenomenal The Rite of Spring. A refined and exquisite counterpart to the potent music, played by the Göteborg Opera Orchestra. Stravinsky depicts a brutal ritual in which a young person is selected as a sacrifice, performing a dance to the death as the music reaches a crescendo. In Roy Assaf's interpretation, the music is assigned a somewhat new meaning. Exactly what this meaning entails will become clear at the world premiere.
