Castle in the Air

Don’t worry. Just call it “horizon” and you’ll never reach it (Ocean Vuong).

Sometimes floating in ethereal dreams, other times landing abruptly on concrete, the dancer is exploring different dimensions of her own entity.

Castle in the Air is the graduation work of choreographer Maria Sartzetaki (Fontys Dance Academy). Performed by urban dancer Aelsya Dobysh Castle in the Air is a fusion between Dobysh’s unique house dance qualities and Sartzetaki’s poetic research in movement.

Language no problem
