Wednesday, 26.4.2023, 19:30 to 21:15 Sleeping Beauty


Dance piece by Andrey Kaydanovskiy. Music by Peter I. Tchaikovsky.

Andrey Kaydanovskiy is a storyteller without being striking narrative. His choreographies are elegant and surprisingly humorous. Andrey Kaydanovskiy lends a contemporary narrative to Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s most successful ballet, premiered in St. Petersburg in 1890 and choreographed by Marius Petipa.

In Kaydanovsky’s interpretation, Sleeping Beauty lives in isolation in a world marked by hedonism, in which he creates a social panorama in a kind of chamber play. It’s only through a case that she gets to the bottom of the facts. She falls into deep sleep, in which the unconscious penetrates to the surface. Sleeping Beauty finally awakens in a new reality for her, which will make her a self-confident and self-determined woman. With a lot of humour bordering on absurdity, Andrey Kaydanovskiy deals with the difficult process of growing up and emancipation from the parent generation and the parental home. He sketches the story of the search for self-determined freedom and identity – but also tells of incredible power, beauty, love and longing.
