The House of Bernarda Alba: In Federico García Lorca's drama, the soul-destroying power of oppressive tradition brings misery to the lives of a grim and tough-minded woman and her daughters. Those who bow down under harsh traditions accept a life of eternal unhappiness. Those who rebel against them in the hope of finding serenity and happiness are destroyed. Exit: Most of the concepts we associate with defining ourselves - work, family, our relationships with our partners, home - often force us to make compromises, and give up our independence and sometimes our freedom. We emerge from the grip of the limitations that burden us - and at the same time, lead us - and tread our own path in place of the previous patterns. We move out of, or have already long since moved out of, the collective path, to seek out something in an empty space among denied and distorted ideals. Tabula rasa: In these times, we are all striving to find harmony in our chaotic society. Although we are better connected than ever before through technology, we are still alone. It is a truly heroic feat to find in ourselves the strength that allows us to work through uncomfortable situations and let go of painful experiences. This choreography created to Michael Gordon's dynamic and groundbreakingly crafted musical work meets this challenge. The melodies appear to randomly appear and flow this way and that in the usual structure, while still causing disharmony. In the spotlight of turmoil and tension, we reach a turning point that leads us to the necessity of a new start: a tabula rasa.
