What can we still learn from Sleeping Beauty’s tale and Tchaikovsky’s 1890 adaptation? What would her eyes open on if she were to wake up today? Marcos Morau channelled his love for the reimagining of tales by condensing the material into the theme of time dilation. He imagined a time-warping vortex to produce a show for 13 dancers reflecting reality through a prism of distortion. Sleeping Beauty gathers all the resources of dance, music, costumes and light into a meticulous visual board, reinventing the tale. The stage is overcome by a whirlwind replete with images of ghosts, while the abstract and the incarnate mesh as time spirals out of its bounds. Between illusion and reality, this Sleeping Beauty is an unstoppable, frenetic procession of chaos full of twin figures.
