Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is one of Europe's most successful and inventive choreographers. His productions are like voluminous story books, full of quirky, wickedly observed characters, recognisable from real-life scenarios. London Premiere. All the major ideologies and world religions, from Marx through Hitler to Mao, and from the Bible to the Koran, refer to (and swear by) a Holy Scripture. Belgian Choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui poses relativism, the equality of all cultures, the equal merit of the apocryphal, condemned writings, and so on, in counterpoint to these forms of 'absolute rightness' in Apocrifu. Set in Herman Sorgeloos' imposing wooden staircase to a desired heaven, books are unrespectfully scattered everywhere. Cherkaoui dances together with Yasuyuki Shuto, a classical dancer from the Ballet of Tokyo, and Dimitri Jourde, contemporary dancer and circus artist. The three dancers try to bring their distinct universes and opposing dance languages together. They are accompanied on stage by the Corsican vocal ensemble A Filetta.
