Dreams of Ether was originally created by the Artistic Director of the Compañía Nacional de Danza for the prestigious Nederlands Dans Theater. The piece takes us into a dream world, where eight women dance their dreams/nightmares within an extremely oppressive atmosphere.
The music by Landowski calls for a world where everything turns into a metaphysical speech, through which one can understand life through sounds. Joy, meditation, sorrow, frustration, desire, all these emotions developed by the eight performers in this ballet have their roots in the Concert pour Ondes Martenot for percussion and string orchestra by the wonderful French composer.
