Itland & Greter:

GNOSSIENNE

Gnossienne is a performance featuring pianist Bernhard Greter. Through the intimate meeting between dancer and pianist, partly choregraphed, partly improvised, it aims to remind us of where true fulfillment and happiness lies. Seeking inspiration in the ancient gnostic ideas of fulfilment, through abandonment of materialism, in favour of knowledge about the spiritual and soulful dimensions of being a human being, this performance tells a story of how easy it is to loose track of the true beauty of life itself, in a world that constantly scatters our focus and keeps repeating to us, that our value is solely dependent on measurable performance, attributes and the things we surround ourselves with.

Gnossienne was premiered in April of 2019.
