GAUTHIER DANCE//DANCE COMPANY THEATERHAUS STUTTGART
SCREAMS OF ANGER
What a violent, even spooky evening of dance! Gauthier Dance brings all the depravity of the world to the stage with its new production "The Seven Sins", in a two-hour, non-stop tour de force. People shout at each other, greed for money, stagger in a drug frenzy: With this image-rich, strongly dance-theatrical evening, the one-and-only cuddly dance company in Stuttgart's Theaterhaus ventures into new, abysmal worlds - once again, one has to say, given the troupe's astonishing development.
Eric Gauthier has assembled seven top-class dancers for the seven deadly sins, international and busy choreographers whom other dance directors often struggle to find for years. Many of them usually work with their own companies in full-length forms, some surprise for these concise miniatures with quite untypical pieces. In dense, sometimes frightening images, we see greed, sloth, pride, gluttony, lust, wrath and envy.
