IKARUS – Flying High

Augusto Jaramillo Pineda

In their new production the young
artists, under the artistic direction of Augusto Jaramillo Pineda, will focus on the myth of Icarus. To what extent do the motifs of the youthful hero, who pays for his soaring flight with his life, reflect today’s realities? Where do courageous willingness to take risks, vital curiosity, unbridled thirst for adventure end and where do dangerous transgressions of meaningful boundaries begin? Whether it is the search for the ultimate kick or recognition or spontaneous, exuberant recklessness – the young ensemble tracks down diverse inspirations and combines them with movement impulses from the Parkour sport to energetic dance theatre.
