No one wants to fall. Falling makes you vulnerable. In today’s society we want progress; onward and upward, faster, more. But surely falling is part of life? Water evaporates, rises and comes back down as rain; people live and learn; they get knocked down and they get back up again. What would be left of our creativity if no one ever dared to leap into the dark? VAL is a musical ode to falling, in which we look our fears in the eye.
Who still dares to fall?
Val brings the company’s poetical genre to the big stage, accompanied by Calefax reed quintet with music by Yannis Kyriakides. Like the players, they also explore the extremes; scaling the highest heights and dropping to the deepest lows.
