Ballet comes to theatre in not one but two productions
Ballet Cymru presents a sparkling evening of the finest dance to Theatr Mix with not one but two pieces.
Cerys Matthews’ iconic album of Welsh Folk Music is the inspiration for TIR, and choreographers Darius James OBE and Amy Doughty have used 11 of the songs from the album to create a unique work especially for the dancers of Ballet Cymru.
Ballet Cymru Resident Choreographer Marcus J Willis brings to the stage the re-imagining of his choreographic work, Stream of Consciousness, first premiered by Ailey II in 2016. Stream of Consciousness gives physical life to our inner thoughts. Willis weaves six simple gestures into “the stream,” the tumultuous monologue within each person’s mind. Set to a contemporary working of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons by Max Richter, this work echoes the tension and poignancy of the music’s ever-changing tides.
