Just came back from the Athens Concert Hall and the breathtaking performance of the Nederlands Dans Theater. Feeling empty, cause these dancers took all my thoughts and all my senses with them.I've been to so many performances of contemporary dance in different countries, but i had never -ever- seen like that before. How can i pass you the feeling of being naked in the rain, of the total modest effect, the idea of no flesh limits, the sententious but static passion diffusion??? HOW???? If there was a dictum for passion, it would have the form of this choreography.

All these three parts were exceptional. How can you call the feeling when you're so excited that you just don't know what to do, or just lacerate yourself?
“Shoot the Moon” - Paul Lightfoot, Sol Leon & Music by Philip Glass
“Wings of Wax” - Jiri Kyllian & Music by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, John Cage, Philip Glass, Johann Sebastian Bach
“The second person” - Crystal Pite & Music by Owen Belton
Leaving the Concert Hall, i was so lucky to come across the tuneful dancers of the ballet, congratulate and thank them ...:
