La La Land

World Premiere 8 May 2010, The Gothenburg Opera house, Gothenburg.

Combining dance and spoken dialogue the two choreographers Alexander Ekman and Medhi Walerski created a humorous image of mankind’s constant efforts to develop. The piece was inspired by the famous researcher Jill Bolte Taylor and her lecture on her self experienced stroke. The music is a collage from Chopin, Puccini and Akron/Family, among others.

The piece was created for The Göteborg Ballet in 2010 and was met with great acclaim.
