LULU is a dance-theatre-music monodrama inspired by Frank Wedekind’s Lulu plays Der Erdgeist (The Earth Spirit) and Die Büchse der Pandora (Pandora’s Box).

“My fascination with Wedekind’s Lulu finds its source in the multidimensional tragedy, as well as in the beauty of the character itself who walks the destructive path of her own destiny, from a femme fatale with a strong need to destroy men, embodying the power of female sexuality, manipulating the natural force she wants to control and take revenge on the male world, furthermore, a sexually emancipated woman who uses sex to gain power, all the way to a completely different woman ruled by the bloodstream of harmless, innocent characteristics of essentially emphasized vulnerability or a woman who is simply what she is and defies all specifications.In the strong interaction of two souls, one speaking body and the other speaking music, to the music of Alexander Balanescu, the piece is performed by Brazilian dance artist and performer, former lead dancer of Staatstheater Darmstadt and Musiktheater Linz, Andressa Miyazato, and violin virtuoso and founder of the world-famous Balanescu Quartet, Alexander Balanescu.” Staša Zurovac
