One of two pieces in the company´s October performance

…when brothers and sisters will rot from an extinct day, swallowed by incandescent waves; from this howling ride will gush out the white hair of a new sun, of a new dawn.

A new piece inspired by nordic mythology, choreographed by the French choreographer Jérôme Delbey. The poetry, complexity and richness of the Eddas has often in history been shadowed by the Greek-Roman mythology. Let hel hold what she has tends to reexplore the creation and destruction of the world according to the ancient nordic faiths.
