Looking backward to tomorrow

How do you explore in a dance piece the potential tensions between nature and urbanism,

between the group and the individual, between landscape and body? These are the points of enquiry which Avatâra

Ayuso pursues in her first full-length production Looking Backward to To-Morrow. Already the title expresses

motion; it underlines the turning back while looking forward. Two movements in one.

Eine Produktion von Avatâra Ayuso in Koproduktion mit HELLERAU- Europäisches Zentrum der Künste und Tanzplan Dresden – Tanzplan Dresden wird gefördert von Tanzplan Deutschland, eine Initiative der Kulturstiftung des Bundes. Gefördert durch die Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen. Mit freundlicher Unterstützung der Deutschen Werkstätten Hellerau und SemperOper Ballett

Ayuso makes use of a wide choreographic material which she manages to blend in a unique way, with a firm grip, searching along with her dancers in such a way that finally the authenticity of the movements and images convince us completely
