DANCE QUINTET || 70 minutes

Supported by an original soundtrack, striking costumes and an outstanding international cast, MERLIN is a dark fairy tale instilled with the protean spirit of the eponym character.Jostling with rational narrative and swimming in the substance of myth, MERLIN dives into body textures to invokes fairy tales, pagan carnivals, dark waters, Orphic themes, monsters, wild animals, a battered queen, a shamanic devil, and a strong-headed child-woman, countless images that resonate in our hearts, the fading of time, and of course, Merlin himself, and his mischievous grin.
