New Dance Film Features Kronos’ 50 for the Future

We are thrilled to share the premiere of “Diorama,” a new dance piece featuring Maria Kochetkova and Daniil Simkin, choreographed by Sebastian Kloborg, and presented in collaboration with Berlin Staatsballett. The film features Kronos’ recordings of two 50 for the Future works: Nicole Lizée’s Another Living Soul and Jlin’s Little Black Book—yet another way fellow artists are bringing Kronos’ 50 for the Future to life!

As Dance Magazine writes: “‘Diorama’ is dark, and strange—a surreal and bizarre chase. Choreographer Sebastian Kloborg’s movements are steeped in theatricality and experiment; when Kochetkova senses Simkin’s presence from her place projected on a backdrop behind him, she’s startled and backs away. Nothing is normal right now, so we might as well try something different.”
