‘Human beings dance in festive celebrations. The dancers are fused with each other and fused with all things in nature. They are not isolated; their joy is felt by the whole of nature and shared by their ancestors. Space and time have vanished; the past has become the present and the Golden Age has returned.’

Ernst Cassirer, philosopher


Erritu brings Kukai Dantza back to the Arriaga Theatre, in collaboration with the renowned choreographer Sharon Fridman. The Basque dance company had been at the Arriaga in 2016 with Oskara, a fabulous show that earned them three Max Awards, including Best Dance Show.
