TORSIA

Torsia is a performance that deals with superiority, with balanced power, passions and urge for destruction, performance that hurts, bites and destroys, a performance about vengeance and punishment. Its under-title, ballet noir, clearly pictures the duality of the author’s approach. He seriously accepts the ballet conventions as classical art, but in the same time, he consciously steps back from the expected, both in choreography and in music.

Torsia is performance of dark colors, powerful emotions, savage acts, highly esthetical, shocking and provocative. Its subject deals with transformation; evil takes humane shape, animal becomes human and vice versa.

Torsia is a dance filled with mystique and symbolism open for different interpretations and associations. This production makes one step forward in Croatian contemporary ballet.
