Thirteen Images From The Dark Land (18+)
13 different aspects of the soul in the human body in 13 images
At first intertwined, then separating
Hushed, peaceful, but at times also crawling animal-like, snaking around each other, they reach out to touch
each other and the space around them.
Krisztina de Châtel and SALLY collaborated to create a duet that focuses on human contact. To the sounds of music composed by George Crumb and live music by Ensemble 88, SALLY’s dancers move through a choreography by the grande dame of modern Dutch dance to explore the human soul encased in the physical body: intense, macabre, aggressive and tender alike.
De Châtel’s creative work can be extremely sober and compelling, but it can also take on very dramatic forms. In Thirteen Images From the Dark Land, she draws a comparison with the present chaotic world of modern man. The numerous illusions in this work are symbolic in nature and represent the soul’s journey. Inspired by Crumb’s musical composition, De Châtel decided to portray the different aspects of the soul inside the human body. Like the music, her dancers are at times devilish, aggressive, and macabre and at times subtle and tender.
