"As we grow older we often reflect on our journeys and I, for one, look back on my path with a true smile, thinking of a time when things were bright and carefree. Those were golden days!”, says Swedish choreographer Johan Inger about his work "Golden Days", which combines two already existing works with a new short solo.

The newly created choreographic triptych sees the Italian ensemble Aterballetto dance to a unifying beat, namely that of American legends such modern jazz and pop icons Tom Waits, Patti Smith and Keith Jarrett. Through their music and art, these artists influenced and helped to change a whole generation. There is a certain sense of history and nostalgia, a reflection on a time in the past that seemed simple and carefree.
