The Place of Choice | by Roman Novitzky

The double bill NOVITZKY / DAWSON unites two strong choreographers of contemporary ballet. Roman Novitzky is a storyteller who uses contemporary choreography to look beneath the surface, who translates his thoughts and feelings into dance in a profound and reflective way. Inspired by Dante’s “Divine Comedy,” his new piece explores a question that is currently preoccupying us all as a society: Where is humanity headed? To paradise or to hell? Do we even have a choice? And: who is showing us the way?
