Falten der Nacht (2000)
cie. toula limnaios

Day and night as symbols for dream and reality, daily life and desire, growth and decay, mirror the complexity of human existence – marking the two poles between which humankind acomplishes its tasks. The stage becomes a living canvas out of which four dancers emerge and depict a fantastic kaleidoscope of episodes that are as common or absurd as life itself. »Falten der Nacht« – the most romantic of the company’s early works.

» ›Falten der Nacht‹ is a symphony brimful with poetry, in which dance performs miracles in harmony with music and light. For one whole evening, the cie. toula limnaios manages to transform the stage into a disparate and dazzling moment, an unforgettable dream.«
(urbuz.com, Paris, London, Berlin, Andrea Philippi 2000)

»In the leaden light, four figures gaze motionless behind them, as if set in a still life landscape by Caspar David Friedrich. …«
(Berliner Morgenpost, Volkmar Draeger, 2000)

Between Day and Night: Blue Hour in the Theater
»Were it not Toula Limnaios presenting her newest choroeraphy at such a late hour, one might think Balanchine had adapted his ›Serenade‹ to changed conditions. Full of fancy and poetry, she unveils layer after layer of existence – allowing its beauty to gain extraordinary strength in the lit spaces composed by Klaus Dust.«
(Die Welt, Hartmut Regitz, 2000)
