Eroica

Sexuality, power and the end of heroism are the subjects of SEXES, choreographed to Beethoven’s third “Eroica” Symphony. Inspired by psychoanalyst Antoinette Fouque’s theories of female sexuality as a source of equity and self-determination as well as Beethoven’s disappointment at Napoleon‘s obsession with power, SEXES is an erotic, violent and ultimately joyful reflection of the plurality of sex.
