Shine a Light shows that house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot make dancetheatre. This brand new ballet combines their characteristic dance language with an impressive set design, costumes (by Sol León together with Joke Visser and Hermien Hollander), a fascinating light design (Tom Bevoort), and drama. In the credits with the ballet Paul Lightfoot quotes Francis Bacon: ‘In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness has to be present’.
