'Quintett' premiered in 2002. In this work, rage, calmness, and resignation fight to get the overhand. It is a great challenge for the dancers to perform difficult academic moves, as well as animalistic movement. The result is a typhoon of chaotic movement that somehow contains a wonderful and incomprehensible logic.
