Only by dancing in the abyss can we celebrate the LIGHT
We’re thrilled that our new project LIGHT Bach dances (working title) has been shortlisted for the 2020 Fedora Prize for Ballet.
Bach’s cantatas, Shechter’s profoundly affecting choreography and audio testimony of people contemplating the end of their lives come together in a moving, thought-provoking and life-affirming piece of dance, music and theatre in a new collaboration between Hofesh Shechter, opera director John Fulljames and conductor Lars Ulrik Mortensen.
