    In The Big Noise, Irish choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan creates a response to the Torsåker witch trials, which took place in 1675 in Ångermanland, Sweden. In one single day, 71 people were beheaded and then burned. Most were women, a couple of men and also four children. Their alleged crime was abducting children to Blåkulla, the legendary meadow where the Devil held his earthly court. The Big Noise has been created exclusively for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. When starting the rehearsals, January 2015, Michael Keegan-Dolan said: “The events of 1675 continue to bear meaning for us today. The witch trials appear to be the last great settlement between Paganism and Christianity and a victory of patriarchal society over woman. Her function as high priestess, as wise old women – is declared criminal and punishable by death. However for a shadow to exist there must be a source of light and now more than ever, we are compelled to explore this light and celebrate its infinite nature.” --- I The Big Noise riktar den irländske koreografen Michael Keegan-Dolan ljuset mot de grymma häxjakterna i Sverige på 1600-talet. Närmare bestämt den häxprocess som ägde rum år 1675 i ångermanländska Torsåker. Under en enda dag halshöggs och brändes 71 personer. De var flesta kvinnor, ett par män men också fyra barn. Brottet de anklagades för var att ha rövat med sig barn till Blåkulla. The Big Noise skapas direkt för GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. Inför repetitionsstarten i januari uttryckte koreografen sig så här: "Det som hände 1675 påverkar oss fortfarande. Häxprocesserna kan ha utgjort den sista striden mellan hedendom och kristendom, men de innebar också det patriarkala samhällets seger över kvinnan. En del kvinnors roll som ’prästinnor’, som kloka gummor, förklarades brottslig och straffades med döden. Men, för att en skugga ska kunna existera måste där finnas en ljuskälla. Och nu, mer än någonsin, måste vi utforska det ljuset och fira dess outsläckliga förmåga." ”… ett musikaliskt och koreografiskt särlingsverk” - Alba --- THE BIG NOISE CHOREOGRAPHY Michael Keegan-Dolan ASSISTANT CHOREOGRAPHER Rachel Poirier SET DESIGN Sabine Dargent COSTUME DESIGN Doey Lüthi LIGHT DESIGN Adam Silverman MUSICAL DIRECTOR Ale Möller MUSICIANS Henrik Cederblom, Sanna Eriksson, Guro Kvifte Nesheim, Larisa Ljungkrona och Ale Möller MUSIC Ny och gammal nordisk folkmusik CHILDREN AND EXTRAS DANCERS FROM GÖTEBORGSOPERANS DANSKOMPANI Astrid Boons Delphine Boutet Jenna Fakhoury Therese Fredriksson Mai Lisa Guinoo Erik Johansson Maria Chiara Mezzadri Ekaterina Shushakova Danielle de Vries Arika Yamada Dorotea Saykaly

      Nick Caves’ music plays a central part in Your Passion is Pure Joy to Me. In the same way as the singer asks himself in his texts just how it is possible to live with painful memories, Stijn Celis has seven colourful dancers, moving with an obstinate expression, exploring the possibility of finding hope and consolation after traumatic experiences. Words as impressionistic and intimate have been used to describe this choreography, created for The Göteborg Ballet. This trailer was recorded on 18 May 2012 en.opera.se/forestallningar/noetic-2015-2016/

                  For "If we shadows have offended", the Norwegian choreographer Alan Lucien Øyen has been inspired by the Peter Pan-complex and by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The creation is a nostalgic flashback to the 1980s, with a strong wish to never grow up. About, the choreographer says, "grown up men who don't want to grow up." A play in and about reality in a dreamscape. Alan Lucien Øyen has been called “the most interesting up-and-coming artist in Norway” – emotional and touching. He runs his own company, Winter Guests, and has choreographed creations for Skånes Dansteater as well as for the Norwegian National Ballet. He has been awarded numerous international prizes for his work. ”My pieces are often about our fear of death. A fear which becomes more intense when your own parents are dead and you're next in line. We also live in a society where many people are afraid to grow up. Neverland has grown out of my wish to explore the Peter-Pan complex: what does it mean to never grow up?” ALAN LUCIEN ØYEN Choreography, set deign and text Alan Lucien Øyen Assistant Choreographer Daniel Proietto Costume design Stine Sjøgren Light design Martin Flack Sound design Gunnar Innvær Guest artist Kate Strong Dancers from GöteborgsOperans Danskompani Angelina Allen Nigel Campbell Jim De Block Simone Deriu Matthew Foley Toby Kassell Maxime Lachaume Fan Luo Pascal Marty Jonathan Savage Ján Špoták Oleg Stepanov Lee-Yuan Tu More info: http://en.opera.se/forestallningar/shadowland-neverland-2014-2015/
