Song of the dark forest - The Netherlands

Song of the dark forest - The Netherlands

Song of the dark forest is a moving, compelling and comforting performance, performed by the full Scapino group of dancers, an opera singer and live music by the DoelenEnsemble. The tragic song of war is sung. An unknown soldier, hovering between life and death, longs to return to his loved ones but is also haunted by memories of the battlefield. With poignant songs and dance by four choreographers, this timeless story comes to life. The title of the final work Prayer for Peace is a true motto for the entire performance.
