Coming out of a long choreographic Swedish tradition, Ballet Cullberg has been consistently excellent, enlisting a new generation of creators. Jefta van Dinther is one of them. Protagonist is her second piece for Ballet Cullberg after the successful Plateau Effect in 2013. This piece is a story about “care, lineage, alliance as well as isolation, control and alienation.” In the electronic mood set up by David Kiers, this dance full of energy, waves and naked bodies shows a community of individuals caught up in perpetual motion. Jefta van Dinther elevates the four performers of the ballet with a visually and emotionally powerful choreographic manifesto.
