Salome has become a symbol for dangerous female seductiveness over history. This riveting contemporary dance solo is set in the moment when Salome danced before Herod and is inspired by the passion and contradictions of this incredible mythical woman: full of powerful charisma but also insecurities, and love for a man who didn’t reciprocate. Avatâra collaborates with Scottish composer Daniel Williams, taking as a departing point the original piece by Richard Strauss.
