danscreen 2016 Award in the category “Live performance relay and camera re-work”
“I wanted to do something big and wild and different. Something with water!” said Alexander Ekman - and filled the Main Stage at the Oslo Opera House with 5,000 litres of water. In this full-length work created for the Norwegian National Ballet, the dancers are joined by actors, a soprano, musicians and 1,000 rubber ducks. Alexander Ekman is an award-winning choreographer, internationally acclaimed for his inventiveness, musicality and humour. With a score by Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson and costumes by Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov, "A Swan Lake" takes a fresh and witty look at Tchaikovsky‘s ballet of ballets.
