A flabbergasting experience, theatrically, musically and visually, and not likely to be forgotten for a long time.
During apartheid in South Africa, the artist William Kentridge began doing charcoal drawings, responding to the injustice he had always condemned.
His multi-faceted work has been featured in leading museums, opera houses and theaters around the world.
Sibyl combines elements of theater, literature, dance, music and cinema in a unique work of art.
The first part has a concert together with a film where William Kentridge invites the audience to enter the private realm of his artist’s studio. The second part is Waiting for the Sibyl, the prophetess able to see everyone’s destiny.
Singers, dancers and musicians convey their meditations on the human condition, and with great emotional force.
