About performance

A new creation by Ben J. Riepe based on the original „amour espace“ production from 2007.

As a new production for AURA Dance Theater, German choreographer Ben J. Riepe creates a new version of his piece „Meilės Erdvė“ | „amour espace“ 2021, which has been touring internationally and was originally produced for five performers in 2007. Together with the dancers of AURA Dance Theater, the piece will be reworked and newly created into a grand 2020 version for ten performers.

Ben J. Riepe’s works are known to roam between dance/choreography, visual arts and increasingly make use of music, composition, and song on stage as well, creating overwhelming productions of total art. „Meilės Erdvė“ | „amour espace“ 2021 version will include live-music and dense atmospheres of light, sound, and performance, which allow for a very sensual experience for the audience.

“Doing a new „Meilės Erdvė“ | „amour espace“ 2021 version has been long since in my mind and the invitation to Kaunas to work with the renowned ensemble of AURA and a cast of ten dancers has given us the opportunity to embark on this journey together”, Ben. J. Riepe states.
