Of lost and wild roses is a new piece by choreographer Lea Ved from Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) for three dancers in GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. This first collaboration between the two prestigious dance companies is a platform for choreographic exchange that shines the spotlight on new female choreographers. In parallel with this, Göteborg Opera dancer Emilie Leriche will create a new work for dancers in the NDT2 dance company.

”i invite you into an attempt to translate a question and reflection of, home. a shifting ambiguity, an ancient belonging, a sometimes separated homeland we long to know, or remember. our dispersed narratives that search for some kind of unity through time. though lost and though wild — we reach through nostalgia to celebrate what we try not to forget — a true sense of home we live and bloom.” – Lea Ved
