Two-part evening including the opera onion.onion by Sivan Cohen Elias and a newly created ballet by a member of the Hessian State Ballet Company.
Opera by Sivan Cohen
Criminals, activists and security services bustle at the edge of a confusing digital world, where every trace is easily covered up. What is true and what is fake? "onion.onion" aims to place visualise and place this "terra incognita" in closer relationship with the real world. The Medusa virus has been let loose on the internet and is fast infiltrating users and their hardware. But the allegory of the ancient myth holds some promise: a rewriting of history. From beautiful girl to monster - and back again?
A new ballet by a member of the Hessian State Ballet Company
Last season's "Startbahn 2017" project saw members of the Hessian State Ballet trying their hand at choreography. One of these young dancer-choreographers now gets the chance to develop their craft into a larger-scaled work, forming the second part of the production "Code".
OPENS: 12 April in 2018 in Darmstadt
