With eight dancers, a live band, animal heads and knife throwers, it's fair to say that Jakop Ahlbom bends the world-famous fairy tale entirely to his will. The characters in Swan Lake discover their darker sides, manipulative tendencies, jealousy and vengefulness, as well as the truth that love doesn't conquer all. Alamo Race Track transform the original music by Tchaikovsky into their own characteristic style with influences from indie, folk and pop. The band will also compose new music for the production and will be performing live on stage every night.
SWAN LAKE is the first dance performance by Jakop Ahlbom in collaboration with ICK under the directorship of Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten.
