Diaghilev – at the turn of time(s)

Sergei Diaghilev

The project Diaghilev - at the turn of time(s) is a tribute to the pioneers of the sensitive approach to art that emerged in Europe 100 years ago. It is a forward-looking initiative based on progressive curatorial principles and new technical possibilities. We are thus placing the period around the First World War in a critical context with our time today, when a war caused by Russia has broken out in Europe. Through dance and music, the evening will take us back to this era in which people clung to the idea and reality of beauty despite uncertainty and suffering.
