The film Casablanca, starring Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, is considered one of the best films ever. Choreographer Ed Wubbe uses the story of the Hollywood classic from 1942 as the basis for an expressive performance about passion, freedom and the desire for a better world.
Start time: 20:00 & 15:00 (matinee)
In Casablanca, Wubbe forges various disciplines together into a blistering whole. On a rotating stage, he creates an imaginative, theatrical world with dance in various styles, circus elements and music. Casablanca is set in a place where people, fleeing from war, wait for a better life. The romantic story hides a twilight world where reality and fantasy rub shoulders and the boundaries between good and evil fade.
-|-Musical starting point is the film's soundtrack with its incomparable film music and jazz numbers from the 1940s. The well-known song 'as time goes by' also appears in various arrangements in the performance.
