A seductive, whimsical, sensually stimulating and provocative spectacle that brings homage to the legendary ballet master Sergei Diaghilev.
As a seductive charlatan more interested in logic that in principles, and utterly ungifted, Sergei Diaghilev had all the qualities of the ideal patron except money. As creative and ambiguous as a snake, he, with his Ballets Russes, squirmed his way into his audience's consciousness and injected it with a new, hedonistic and aesthetic sensitivity. SERGE too will likewise fill the brain, like a musical vortex. Starting out as an installation, it gradually becomes a seductive, whimsical, sensually stimulating and provocative spectacle – exactly as Diaghilev would have wanted it.
Based on works by Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, Erik Satie.
