Poetic play-of-light theatre with illuminated baroque dresses, masks, dance and music. The ghostly gestures and movements of the dancers and the play of light and shadow transport the audience into a dreamlike, ethereal world.
Theater NADI is an ensemble of dancers and actors. Steffen Findeisen and the Japanese actress Noriko Seki have worked together since 2002. Using poetic gestures, ritualistic masks and sounds, narrative images and elements of dance, they create a bridge between Asia and Europe. The theatre has collaborated with T-Werk for many years, resulting in numerous co-productions.
How beautifully apparently contradictory elements can be combined is proven by Theater NADI beneath the glinting crescent moon in Irrlichten der Nacht. Steffen Findeisen and Noriko Seki – dressed in baroque women’s costumes – pull off a symbiosis of Frederick-the-Great baroque and movement art to create a wonderfully harmonious and mysterious new form of poetry.
