SHE WAS BLACK
The highly acclaimed piece ‘She was Black’ from 1995 is about mystical doors and openings to another world, about the interior and the urban. Mats Ek wanted to reconnect with the lyrical concept after making modern interpretations of classical ballets such as Carmen and Swanlake, now without the heavy narrative. The interaction between these two approaches of dance (lyrical and narrative) is of upmost importance to Ek. His language sheds light on the darkness inside us all.
