Information

Chamber ballet about power and seduction

Why do the masses follow a leader who is totally unsuited to govern? Someone who is driven by slyness, treachery and mendacity? This disturbingly topical theme was already adopted by Shakespeare in many of his plays. How did figures such as Richard II or Richard III ascend to the throne? All done with a generous helping of humour, Richard Wherlock asks this question and also investigates how to step down from there again. The original music has been composed by dancer and ensemble member Max Zachrisson.
