Tenebre – Piedro Obiera

Tenebre-4
“Out of the darkness on stage the dancers dressed in black or black and white detach themselves lemur-like from a dense mass of human bodies. In the skilful lighting design of Mark Doubleday the stage lightens only slowly and the figures celebrate movements which become increasingly strict and whose curves appear to be traced with almost academic accuracy. (…) A new piece by Essakow, which Merle Hensel provides with visual ballast via dark, mysterious images with religious connotations.”
