Taulant Shehu, "Dua"

Taulant Shehu: Dua

Taulant Shehu, a dancer from the Hessisches Staatsballett and up-and-coming choreographer, explores his Albanian roots in his new creation Dua. “Family and traditions are two important foundations for Albanian culture; there is hardly another time when they are more closely bound than at a wedding ceremony,” he says. In Dua, a wedding as the pinnacle of festiveness, happiness and the promise of remaining together forever becomes the point of departure to reflect on living together in general. Taulant Shehu directs his attention to the individual participants and choreographically explores their own stories, emotions and backgrounds.

The composer Arne Stevens provides music for this danced approach to tradition; it places the cultural origins of this work in a musical focus as well by working with traditional Albanian instruments.
