In ‘Djurens karneval’ (Carnival of the Animals) a magical universe full of imaginative creatures awaits. To the tones of Camille Saint-Saëns’s classical masterpiece ‘Le carnaval des animaux’, these spectacular beings welcome you to a place outside our world, where fantasy and reality can meet.
Spanish choreographer Marcos Morau and Skåne Dansteater’s dancers borrow details from reality to pick them apart and force them together, creating new truths. Get inspired by the ingenuity of Marcos Morau’s peculiar movement language and Silvia Delagneau's fantastic costumes. But stay on your toes, in ‘Djurens karneval’ the step from loving animals to nasty beasts is teeny-tiny.
