Reality and the Cosmos

by Iván Pérez

World premiere
World premiere
with Musik by Bach, Beethoven, Riley and Sumera
[recommended for ages 16 and up]

In his new creation, »Reality and the Cosmos«, the artistic director of Dance Theatre Heidelberg (DTH), Iván Pérez, plays with cosmological visions on stage. In collaboration with the Japanese visual artist Yoko Seyama and inspired by transformation processes, Pérez shines a stark light on our fascination with the universe. Based on the idea that creative acts reflect our evolutionary sense of identity, »Reality and the Cosmos« invites the audience to ponder our reality from a further perspective.

DTH dancers and musicians of the Philharmonic Orchestra Heidelberg explore new territories and create a poetic universe rich in musical, physical, and visual compositions.

This production is accompanied by a programme from the Arts & Education team.
