Spring, summer, autumn, winter – gentle birdsong, summer thunderstorms, rustling coloured leaves, clashing frost. Playful and dreamy, the well-known music by Antonio Vivaldi is reinterpreted for children by choreographer Barbara Fuchs together with the Braunschweig State Orchestra. The cycle of life, of nature, which looks and feels different in different parts of the world – sometimes winter is cold, elsewhere it is warm – was captured with all its wonders and mysteries in Vivaldi’s music over 300 years ago. Just like nature and the environment, human life is shaped by rhythms and cycles, which are explored in this dance piece through Barbara Fuchs’ creative language of movement.
