La Ruta 2022 / Collaboration

“It’s very difficult to organise a dream, because when you organise it, you wake up. When you take control of a dream, you understand that you are sleeping. This is why, to dream you need to be unprotected.” – T. Currentzis

Someone walks alone/cutting the night into fragments of roads
The night is wounded/ bleeding through the cracks of a dream
Wounds scatter/ the breath of animals asleep/ the perfume of lilies
Eyes close and open/ night remains night

La Ruta is the second short performance directed by Gabriela Carrizo for and created with the dancers of Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT 1), after The missing door in 2013. La Ruta premiered on 6 May 2022 at Amare Den Haag, as part of NDT’s evening programme Dreams 360.
