I'd like to inform you about the forthcoming premiere of my collaboration with the choreographer David Dawson.
I designed the stage for his new creation timelapse/(Mnemosyne) with the Dutch National Ballet at Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam.
The premiere will be on June 17 at 20.15, in one program together with another world premiere by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

With his newest creation, David Dawson reflects upon the legends from Greek Mythology. Each passing scene weaves a magical journey back in time, exploring the ideas that lay beneath these stories and questions their continued value and meaning to our modern day psyche. With an original new score specially commissioned from Scanner, set design and projection by artist Eno Henze, and also with long term collaborators, light designer Bert Dalhuysen and costume designer Yumiko Takeshima.

The world premiere of Dawson's new full-length ballet, timelapse/(Mnemosyne), is set for its first performance at Het Muziektheater on 17 June 2011, and marks his return to the Dutch National Ballet.For Tickets and further information see:

It was very interesting and cool last Friday. i enjoyed very much although was seating quite on the side without total view. congs again mr. Eno.
P.S. and .... definitely we have to improve vvvv timeline tool. it's essential for this scale theatre project

Thanks, and thanks dimix for coming!
We're working on staging this somewhere else, but that will be at least a year from today.
I'll post it here of course when new performances are being planned.
