When two mafia bosses meet at one dinner table, there will be more than just bills to pay. This is a story of one great betrayal, entangled with short gangster stories, murderous and vindictive chefs, secret agents and the deadly beauty of Russian prima ballerinas. Dangerous, spicy, hilarious and entertaining, The Last Supper combines dance, live music, singing and acting all brought to you by an international mix of thirteen performers.
“An easy-watching work of dance theater, which does not pretend on having philosophical depth, however is meticulously planned, cleverly put together and realised with great talent. Such a show proves how entertaining dance can be for anyone, being a gateway to dance and theatre for those who have not yet found their way to art. In addition to the fact that entertainment is a legitimate reason why many theater productions are created in the first place, there is also the potential of raising awareness and getting new audience for dance art. The most essential thing to do is appreciate: DEKKADANCERS have great talent to bring humor on the stage with virtue, and that needs both a lot of talent and some luck.”
