Cathedral
Scapino Ballet Rotterdam / Marcos Morau

Spanish choreographer Marcos Morau is a rising star in the European theatre world. After the resounding success of Pablo, he has created a new large-scale production for Scapino Ballet Rotterdam with Cathedral, inspired by the music of composer Arvo Pärt. The music will be performed live by Sinfonia Rotterdam.

Duration 70 minutes
No intermission
Location
Grote Zaal

New choreography by the rising star of European dance theatre.

Marcos Morau (1982) created an international furore with his beautifully designed pieces and inventive movement language. He is praised for the innovative way in which he tells stories by connecting dance and other artistic disciplines. Morau often uses historical data as inspiration. For Scapino Ballet Rotterdam he previously made the much praised Pablo, about the eventful life of Pablo Picasso.

Cathedral is about the mystery of man in the greatness of nature and the infinite universe. Morau places the dancers in an impressive stage setting with life-size video projections and a spectacular lighting design. The encounter with a metre-high meteor on stage is the enigmatic beginning of this dance performance. With Arvo Pärt's spiritual music as the heartbeat, Cathedral evokes feelings about the essence of existence.

About Pablo

Morau's dance also contains several layers, fragments of paso doble and flamenco vitaminizing his typically European, expressive, polished movement language.' - Trouw

'In Pablo, dancers tell us what Picasso must have seen. The group choreographies are performed tightly and the music collage of Bolero, Tchaikovsky and pasodobles works excellently'. - NRC
