Production Description:

In "Wonders of the Universe" Karol uses the documentary genre to create a humorous and intelligent choreography for 3 male dancers. It is inspired by the Brian Cox documentary with the same title which looks at huge issues and minute matter, such as the origin of particles in exploding stars and the creation of black holes. You will see a funny work with multiple layers that will make you wonder about tiny things, human size things and things the size of the universe.


In Edinburgh I will present a 15min version of a 30min piece.
