Schmetterling

Schmetterling, meaning ‘butterfly’, suggests the transitional nature of existence and the continuous crossing of paths between life and death. Duets and trios echo all types of possible love stories to the music by indie rock band Magnetic Fields as well as contemporary composer Max Richter.
“Parvaneh Scharafali and Medhi Walerski ‘speak’ about the eternal love between mother and son, that only ends at death,  in an abstract-mimic language of grimaces, flashing hand gestures and tender hugs, as refined as incomprehensible, and yet eloquent.” NRC HANDELSBLAD

 

World premiere

25 november 2010, Lucent Danstheater, Den Haag.

Choreographer

Sol León en Paul Lightfoot
