Dance Me to the End of Love
Dance Me to the End of Love draws its inspiration from Nobel prize winner for literature Hermann Hesse’s famous novel Siddhartha. Fusing elements of theatre and dance with live music, the show chronicles the quest of the young Siddhartha to conquer suffering and fear. Siddhartha’s journey leads him through the temptations of luxury and wealth, the delights of sensual love and the sinister threat of death-dealing snakes towards the fulfillment of his destiny as a ferryman guided by the all-knowing voice of the running river.
In this visually stunning production, the story of Siddhartha is counter balanced by the poetic and haunting songs of Canadian singer and poet, Leonard Cohen. The production toured to Macau, Singapore, Shanghai, Berlin and Colombia.
