merry.go.round
(Maria Nilsson Waller & Co. )

In her new piece Maria Nilsson Waller looks beyond our world into the great, vast blackness of the cosmos in order to examine our most human of concerns: the search for true love.

In this otherworldly realm of celestial bodies five characters orbit each other. Some are destined to converge, others to split apart. All long for authentic connections in a world where every man is an island.

Rebel Swedish jazz band Je Suis !, NASA recordings of the solar system and iconic opera music all feature as part of the eclectic soundtrack. Strange yet familiar, with a touch of cinematic sci-fi, merry.go.round is never the same twice.

Choreographer: Maria Nilsson Waller
Performers: Elin Hedin, David Nondorf, Marcia Liu, Justine Cooper, Mikel Aristegui
