Ekman's Triptych - A Study of Entertainment
From colorful show to beautiful, poignant melancholy. When choreographer Alexander Ekman, commissioned by Cullberg Ballet, creates his first full-evening performance, his aim is to give the audience a superb evening full of surprises. Three compositions with different expressions and moods, all of which twist and turn the concept of entertainment. Dance is mixed with speech, the playful with the quiet, the simple sentence with the ambiguous. Can everything be entertainment?
