Krabat – a dance performance for which its creators have revived the theme of an old Wendish legend dating from the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries: the famous story of a boy who on the threshold of adulthood comes to know black magic and is fascinated by it until he realises that it can kill him. It depicts the danger of encountering mysterious powers that can allure and infatuate. The hero arrives at the conclusion that only love is able to overwhelm even the darkest magic. The performance is intended for audiences of all age categories.
