New York City
French-American choreographer and dancer Surya Berthomieux will perform a new 30 minute solo work accompanied by the Musical Art Quintet, with an original score by Sascha Jacobsen. The performance piece is about the ever present struggle with self-image and appearances; a journey through emotion, inner tautness, anger and sorrow—a fight to attain a state of self-acceptance and ultimately shed light on what is behind suffering—the energy of life: love. In spite of everything, love has always been in us. The second half of the program will feature new compositions and arrangements by Sascha Jacobsen for the Musical Art Quintet.
