WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this magnificently conceived and imaginative production, the Royal Ballet of Flanders from Belgium, stages celebrated choreographer William Forsythe's masterpiece, Impressing the Czar. Impressing the Czar is a triumphant and kaleidoscopic journey through juxtaposed time, a mélange of genres and styles from the classical to the contemporary set to the music of Beethoven, Leslie Stuck and longtime Forsythe collaborator Thom Willems. From a fairytale court and a comically absurd auction, to a company of unbridled Catholic schoolgirls in a tribal dance set to the music and rhythms of today, Impressing the Czar transcends the conventional to establish a new and extensive choreographic vocabulary.
