At the introductory matinee to Duato / Skeels / Eyal, we will be focussing on the new creation that choreographer Andrew Skeels is currently developing with the ensemble. Several group scenes from the choreography will be shown with dancers from the Bayerisches Staatsballett. In conversation with dramaturge Serge Honegger, Andrew Skeels talks about the creation process and his invention of a new kind of human species. Chasm is about a human-like community in the distant future. They live in a cave and have bonded with a fungus-like structure over a long evolutionary process. Due to a climatic change, this community must find a way to break out of the cave and start a new way of life. The cinematic music of the young composer Antoine Seychal, who is known for his work in the science fiction genre, can be heard from the tape onwards. In addition to Chasm, the works of Nacho Duato (White Darkness) and Sharon Eyal (Autodance) will also be featured, all of which are linked by the theme of "escaping the world". So if you want to travel on Sunday, you can travel a hundred thousand years into the future at the National Theatre in Munich and encounter the rituals of a highly developed species.
