In A’s Adventures, Brussels-based choreographer Anton Lachky takes us on a journey into the realm of the subconscious, where emotional states we don’t know or don’t dare to know explode into view. In this fantastical world, where the poetic and sublime converge, a group of characters emerge through intense, fast paced physicality and a series of bizarre and wondrous events. The Göteborg Opera Orchestra plays Mozart, Bach and Haydn under the direction of Max Renne. Mezzo soprano Lena Haselmann sings and dances on stage together with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
"When it comes to 'A's Adventures', I was first interested in having a green hill on stage, inspired as I was by 'Alice in Wonderland'. With water, trees and rabbit holes. But along the way, the green knoll turned into a mountain of marble, which turned into a white mountain – which was transformed into the iceberg now visible on stage."
