FLY is a film-dance-performance that takes us on a journey through time and space. We get to meet the legendary dance-choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky (c. 1888-1950) who finds great success in Paris with the Ballets Russes in the early 20th century. A decade later, Nijinsky writes a diary, containing texts that testify to an incipient psychosis that will turn into schizophreni
The performance, which takes place on the screen and on the stage at the same time, mixes bodies, art forms, time and space. The events projected on the screen provide both a backdrop and a counter- and co-player to the dancers moving on the stage floor.
In transgressive and experimental ways, FLY takes the audience into a spiritual and timeless quest. Here, fact merges with imagination, and artists – both living and dead – come together to remind the planet and humanity of what they need most of all: Love.
