Dance and choreographic duet Darío Barreto Damas and Aleksandar Georgiev play with Disney heritage in a refined and easy choreographic work Moonlight. We submerge into poetic structures and get lost in them; ordinary ways of perception are broken down in the fusion of the real with the fantastical. Both creators live and work between Stockholm, Sophia and Skopje, they were selected for Life Long Burning project (Creative Europe) and are definitely a dance and choreographic tandem we will hear a lot about in the future.


Moonlight, a duet that is warmed up by pop-cultural trash of the modern age through music and light skilfully appropriates some of the most emblematic points of choreographic minimalism and turns them humorously into fauvistic postcards with (homo)erotic motives without any aesthetic degradations. In Moonlight, a direct group of references and interferences from the history of dance, visual art, music and pop culture is placed on the stage in an extremely refined way. This art congress in the form of a dance duet is entertaining because it stages a wedding between contextual pairs that would otherwise never get married, as they would end up in a divorce settlement right at the very beginning. It seems that Moonlight entertains us exactly by fusing the opposites which is possible only as a form of aesthetic queering. We can really enjoy the show even if we know nothing about all of this.
