Dark by choreographer Liisa Risu was originally created for Zodiak – Center for New Dance, premier Sep 24, 2009. The new version for TADaC dancers builds on the original piece which is thematically based on Samuel Beckett’s short story Ill Seen Ill Said. As the story itself, this dance work is contemplative, rich in darkness, full of associations and open to many interpretations.
