Eros Thanatos

spectacle by Izadora Weiss


Eros Thanatos"Eros Thanatos" is the newest spectacle created by Izadora Weiss and hers White Dance Theater. Choreography was made to music by Kronos Quartet, Karol Szymanowski and Latvian composer Peteris Vasks. Inspiration for Izadora Weiss was Jacek Malczewski's painting, where the obsessive intertwining of erotic motifs with the female personifications of Death is a canvas for many of his paintings. "Eros Thanatos" is performed by an international team of carefully selected dancers led by Izador Weiss. The spectator follows the paths of choreograper's imagination to discover new ways of expressing emotion through dance. Izadora Weiss designed the costumes and scenography herself, giving the spectacle her own character. The premiere took place on September 2017 in Teatr Polski in Warsaw. Theatre's director Andrzej Seweryn gave an institutional support to Izadora Weisse's new company.
The project was implemented from The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage funds.

Phaedra

spectacle by Izadora Weiss


It is a story of a tragic love of a stepmother to her young stepson. This masterpiece of French literature is transformed by Izadora Weiss with use of dance into a heart breaking story of impossible love, of guilt and of helplessness when faced with passions born within out of incomprehensible sources. It is about lies and a death that seems to be the only escape from this cursed trap. It is also a sophisticated show about relentless hierarchy in art and life which causes injustice and yet gives an incredible power to overcome weaknesses and fears.
