I shall die in Florence

World première February 26
Review performance February 21 at 3 pm (meet at the stage entrance at 2:50 pm)

Using his own memories as a starting point, award-winning choreographer and Göteborg Ballet dancer Jérôme Delbey has created the piece I shall die in Florence - a work exploring the fundamental questions about life, death and the importance of cherishing life.

The thought of death unites us all. For his work I shall die in Florence Jérôme Delbey asked the dancers to answer questions about death: How would they like to be remembered? What do they want to leave behind? Based on the answers and the encounters that stay with us as we go through life, he has built a dance performance about the importance of appreciating life and cherishing the relationship with those we love.

Jérôme Delbey has previously worked with Badisches Staatstheater in Karlsruhe and Theater Regensburg, both in Germany. In addition to a large number of freelance projects and pieces for various workshops, Jérôme Delbey has also choreographed several critically acclaimed projects for The Göteborg Ballet, including Mauvais Anges, which was awarded the Scapino Production Prize at the 22nd International Choreography Competition in Hannover, Germany in 2008.

The review performance takes place together with the review performance of Sasha Waltz' noBody on Tuesday February 21 at 3 pm. Meeting point: Stage entrance at 2:50 pm. The press release about noBody, which premières on February 25, was sent out on February 2, 2012.
