The Sandman

Ballet by Christian Spuck

Every evening at bedtime, Nathanael’s mother tells him of the sandman who rips out the eyes of children who don’t want to go to sleep. After an encounter with an unknown optician, Nathanael, now a student, has to come to terms with his childhood fears of the sandman. With an unerring instinct for the irony and brokenness of the text, Christian Spuck transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann‘s mysterious case study into a minimalistic, yet opulent dance story.
