GERMAN EXPRESSIONISM & PERPETUAL MOTION
Inspired by the eponymous score by Franz Schubert, this creation is rooted in Greek mythology : the abduction of Kore, the daughter of Demeter, goddess of the harvest, by the God of Hell, Death. This myth, a veritable analogy of the cycle of seasons, was
Stephan Thoss’ inspiration. Death and the Maiden is sure to be a meditation on the themes of time, from youth to old age. German expressionism and perpetual movement are hallmarks of this deeply moving ballet.
Presented at Place des Arts, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens
