With his newest creation David Dawson marked his return to the Dutch National Ballet. Here, Dawson reflects upon the legends from Greek Mythology and the ideas of Memory.

Each passing scene weaves a magical journey back in time, exploring the ideas that lay within these stories and questions their continued value and meaning to our modern day psyche.

With an original new score specially commissioned from Scanner, set design and projection by artist Eno Henze, and also with long term collaborators, light designer Bert Dalhuysen and costume designer Yumiko Takeshima.
