Performance synopsis

In this triple-bill show, Wainrot tries to convey inalienable values –personal freedom and the freedom of others. The starting point comprises two works by Argentinian composers Piazzolla and Ginastera, who combine native folklore and the innovations of the 20th century through their musical languages. Wainrot identifies himself with the narrative of the third part of the show – a ballet, with music by Bartók, about Anne Frank, whose tragic fate resembles the history of his own family.
