A glowing white moonscape emerges like a mysterious, eerie dream. Seven bodies on this hauntingly lit, floating stage conjoin into abstract sculptural dance, evoking a primordial, otherworldly metamorphosis. As the boundaries between what is human and what is not slowly dissolve a profound installation unfolds of writhing limbs and eerie figures amidst a reflective pool of water.

In collaboration with Japanese visual artist Kohei Nawa, renowned Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet has created an experience that is truly out of this world. Paired with a surreal score by Marihiko Hara with Ryuichi Sakamoto, this breathtaking production is a pioneering work that brings together dance and visual art to create a futuristic and even science-fiction-inspired exploration of the human body.
