“Cross by the Brook” is a dance drama inspired by Karolina Světlá’s novel of the same name, which the choreographer Alena Pešková has set perhaps in the recent past and is “framed” by Dvořák’s beautiful D minor string quartet performed by the Zemlinsky Quartet. It tackles several timeless themes such as: sacrifice, the meaning of life, misunderstanding, guilt and the most important of all… Love.
