Ballet National de Marseille & ICK Amsterdam 🗓 🗺

After the loss of two of his children, Friedrich Rückert wrote a series of poems called Kindertotenlieder . In 1901 composer Gustav Mahler put the poems to classical music.

This music serves as the source of inspiration for choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. In collaboration with composer and musician Frank Krawczyk they create an ode to the power of intuition and vulnerability; qualities that – in today’s society – are gradually fading into dusk, like wolves that shy away from the light of day.

Apparition is a multidisciplinary performance by a choir, consisting of 12 children, supported by dancers of Ballet National de Marseille and ICK Amsterdam. The children perform songs by Mahler, Eisler and Janá?ek and remind us of lost innocence and the fragility of life. The visuals by filmmaker Ruben van Leer take us to a poetic world of dreams, the dusk. Here, wolf and man, intuition and strength, come together.

Apparition is the first part of a diptych. The second part, Disparition , will premiere in 2019.
