Arcadia

2014

Arcadia, as both a starting point and a final destination, provides a broad perspective for the episodes that comprise the production.

Twelve dancers attempt to invoke collective images inspired by the idyllic land of Arcadia in the audience’s memory. But the world of eternal innocence, of happiness and freedom has been lost forever. Arcadia is a requiem for nature, for the utopian dream of Arcadia is in retreat, forced back by the frenzied destruction of the natural environment and the acceptance of our mortality.
