Dance performance COMPASSION is much more than an aesthetically intricate, physically attractive and visually convincing image of contemporary ballet, brought in by Kjara’s Dance Project.
COMPASSION is the story of everyone’s life. It answers to eternal questions of existence and meaning, our endless need of social acceptance that can never be fulfilled, deforming our true selves to the point of becoming unrecognizable. comPASSiON is a universal love story. Touching in its fragility and exciting with the hope it is bringing. The choreographer Kjara Stari? and her dancers find an answer in compassion. Not in the fake compassion of commercial humanity feeding its glutting ego, but in a compassion that thrives in recognition of urgency to overcome egocentric individualism of today’s society, in the compassion born from love for the other and of the world as the only possible paradise.
