Festival-Premiere of Paul Hess choreography “CVs” – a coproduction of AURA dance theatre and artscenico

International Dance Festival AURA’24 took place in Kaunas on 8-12th of October 2014, asking what is masculinity in the Postmodern society? The theme of the festival was flavored with exotic spices.

This year, for the first time in Lithuania, the festival presented Mexican and South Korean contemporary dance. The festival was opened with a stunning performance “Sfumato” by French choreographer Rachid Ouramdane. There were 14 performances listed on AURA’24 program presenting acknowledged and awarded choreographers, dancers and dance companies from Belgium, Italy, Israel, Poland, Mexico, South Korea, France, Sweden as well as a premiere of the co-production of Aura Dance Theatre and artscenico (Germany) which is choreographed by Paul Hess – a dancer who has worked with legendary Pina Bausch. The performance was well received and will tour Germany and other countries in 2015. The nine dancers showed an enthusiastic performance with lots of entertaining sequences and well placed moments of  contemplation and moving images. This is the first work of the newconstellation of the Aura company having an international ensemble.
