The film Casablanca, with Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart in the lead roles, counts like one of the best films ever. Choreographer Ed Wubbe uses the story of the Hollywood classic from 1942 as a basis for a visual representation about passion, freedom and desire for a better world.
In Casablanca, Wubbe puts various disciplines together to a sizzling whole. On a rotating stage he creates with dance in different styles, circus elements, acrobatics and music a fantasy, theatrical world. Casablanca is set in a place where people, on the flee for war, wait for a better existence. Behind the romantic story is a dusk world in which reality and fantasy rubs each other and where boundaries blur between good and evil.
Musical starting point is the soundtrack of the film with its unparalleled film music and jazz numbers from the 40s. The well-known song ‘As Time Goes By’ also returns to the show in various arrangements.
