Choreographer Jefta van Dinther is back with the new big stage production “Protagonist” for 14 dancers in Cullbergbaletten. “Protagonist” will have its Swiss premiere at the "Tanz in Bern"-festival held at Dampfzentrale in Bern.

Protagonist is a contemplation on mankind. Songs of revolution and dances of evolution tell a tale of how people congregate, take on and are given roles. All the while instinct, resistance and compulsion become evidence of the battle each and every individual is fighting. Elias, last year’s major breakthrough artist in Swedish music, whose debut single ‘Revolution’ was a big hit last spring, provides recorded singing and voice-over, accompanied by sound design and music from David Kiers, set design by artist duo SIMKA and lighting design by Minna Tiikkainen
