Cindy Van Acker
After the outstanding tour of Anechoic gathering some fifty dancers as part of the Fête de la danse, Cindy Van Acker will meet Romeo Castellucci for the staging of the opera Tannhäuser at the Staatsoper in Munich, which she is choreographing. Premiere on May 21st.
In May, you will also have the opportunity to see some solo forms signed by the choreographer. First in Orléans, the revival of Obtus, danced by Marthe Krummenacher on a sound creation by Mika Vainio.

Then, in Palermo, Italy, we invite you to discover Knusa, a new solo by Cindy Van Acker, danced by herself. This performance is inspired by the photographic work of Christian Lutz Insert Coins created in Las Vegas, and is performed at the heart of the exhibition of these images.
