Danse Macabre is a synthesis of modern dance theatre and antique mystery play. It connects East and West: Baroque Danse Macabre representations are associated with pictures and concepts from the Tibetan Book of the Death.

The performers guide the spectators on a journey through the intermediate worlds after the death to the light. In the Middle Ages death and dance where not considered a contradiction, they were part of the same reality of life. The Tibetan mythology sees death not as an end, rather as a transition and start of the soul journey. Bridge ghosts, protecting spirits, an execution - religious beliefs and ritual ways of leading with death in different cultural traditions are getting here alive. „In front of death all people are the same. Come on, let's dance".
