Performed by and created in collaboration with:
Emotionally charged and uniquely virtuosic, six outstanding performers dance along the edge of melting glaciers and broken ice floes. Dealing with the issues of global warming and environmental change, Glacier paints a glistening and sometimes disturbing picture of society reflected on an icy surface which is gradually thawing away, beautifully distorting the mirrored image.
Maresa von Stockert is known for telling dance theatre stories exposing the human anti-hero and society’s shortcomings. In her usual distinctive style Set and performers metamorphose, inspiring and manipulating one another. The audience are taken on a magical journey through a world of ice and snow in which suppressed feelings break through frozen planes and icicles turn into tears and icebergs come crushing down on ice princesses.
