4 Voices. 1 Vision. 8 Stories. 1 Desire.
The power of lust and forbidden sin
Switzerland has been enriched by a diverse dance company. With Cie. La Ronde, Cathy Marston and Ihsan Rustem have not only created a new, Swiss-based and at the same time international company, but have also brought in renowned reinforcements for their first full-length programme: Caroline Finn and Luca Signoretti.
Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's play "Reigen", which in 1920 triggered one of the biggest theatre scandals of the 20th century due to its provocative, sexually connoted content, the choreographers explore themes such as attraction, desire, intimacy and power and ask themselves: where do we stand on these issues today, around a century later?
Cie. La Ronde looks at Schnitzler's work and its content from today's perspective. The result is a modern round dance. For this, the dancers deliberately adapt Schnitzler's specific dramaturgy: the self-contained evening consists exclusively of duets that are linked together in a concatenation and finally form a circle. Four unique manuscripts tell eight stories, all linked together to form a whole.
Four international choreographers have found a home in Switzerland. Their first dance evening together is inspired by a play. It is about attraction, desire, intimacy and power. "8" consists of eight stories. The stories are interconnected.
