Today the soloists of "Waiting" - dance piece by Indrek Kornel - wear their finished costumes for the first dress-rehearsal.
The "memory gowns" are made of two metallic fabrics with different density to create the unusual form and are adorned with images of importance from the performers past.
choreographer Indrek Kornel now explores the themes of changing bodies and the urge
to stay active in a piece both nostalgic and light-hearted. The main subject is
how to find ways for retired dancers to reinvent themselves as the world around
them is inevitably changing. The performance is set to the music of Sergei
Prokofiev and uses an excerpt of Ludwig van Beethoven’s sonata performed by acknowledged pianist Adam Benzwi.
