The Last Supper
KAATSBAAN PERFORMING ART CENTER
Choreographer and founder Alexandre Hammoudi presents
THE LAST SUPPER an immersive Ballet experience that brings you the audience inside a story told through dance and music with a closer perspective of the artists. Part modern experience and part traditional ballet storytelling THE LAST SUPPER reveals the modern tale of prince Lazlo who is taking Emma for bride. On the evening of the wedding the whole court is gathered to attend the royal ceremony and perhaps spread a few gossips. During the dinner reception after the two are sealed an old friend enters the scene like an unwanted odd man. The dynamic changes and the tension rises as characters’s true colors comes to light as the piece escalades to a highly physical drama that drives us to the final conclusion of this deceiving reception.
Musical arrangement and composition by Tristan Boccara after Franz Schubert, Antonio Vivaldi and Serge Rachmaninov.
