CHOREOGRAPHY: TRAJAL HARRELL
Director: Trajal Harrell
Life is fleeting. One false move – and it could all be over. For Eurydice, for example, who is being led from the underworld by her lover Orpheus. Both know that if he turns around to look at her, they can never be together again. Or for the roses, lovingly tended by a gardener who is fully aware that their blossoms are fragile and temporary. Or for the protagonist of the evening, who has already experienced so much and now looks forward to entering the third stage of life. While the first work by the American choreographer Trajal Harrell at the Münchner Kammerspiele chose youthful death as its theme in “Juliet & Romeo”, the end of life is one eventuality in his new piece “Morning in Byzantium”. But then at the end, the choice is clear – for life!
