Premiéra: 17.3.2012

Dance Amid Shards is a stylised story of a man’s life, reminiscing major points of his life including the materializing of his dreams and fantasies. The fragility of love, the power of desire, the suffering of rejection, the bitterness and the beauty of knowledge, as well as the uneven match with death and with oneself are tossing the principal character. Strong emotions are recast into dynamic and poetic dance images.
