Back in 1989 DEREVO was performing at OEROL for the very first time!
Aaaaah! Is it really so long ago???
22 years ago this Island made a new hardly noticeable companion to world re-knowned DEREVO theatre company.
Right there in the dunes, under the sky, on the endless sands, in the roaring wind and surf, there the unique principles of DEREVO’s dance have been elaborated. And they mean the mastering of huge spaces, laconic moves, purity of senses, precision in colours of the costumes and props, live music of nature…
Our improvisations here could be just four hours long, as well as nine days and nights without break, like in the „Adventures of the Golden Egg“.
And now at the thirtieth (!) anniversary OEROL Festival, on top of the hill, in an endless wind, blowing all the waste out of your mind and body, here DEREVO performs Mephisto Waltz.
No photograph could possibly convey the power of this place…
But still… here are some photo-visions…
