Dance performance by Roy Assaf

“A ‘Sacre’ which should have strong reverberations throughout Europe”DN
”The dancers are superbly precise and exquisitely provocative”DN
“Delightful slots of humour”GP
”The dancers’ gaze, expression and interaction are perfect”SvD

Multi-awarded, 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.
