8 June:
Sacre, by Roy Assaf

Multi-award winning Israeli choreographer Roy Assaf is well-known for his gender perspective on dance. His raving Sacre – performed to Stravinsky’s explosive The Rite of Spring – is performed by either an all-female or all-male cast. It seduces, entertains and eludes, ending in an surprising sacrifice. 

”The dancers are superbly precise and exquisitely provocative”Dagens Nyheter
“Delightful slots of humour”Göteborgs-Posten
”The dancers’ gaze, expression and interaction are perfect”Svenska Dagbladet
