National Dance Company Wales | Mixed Programme
National Dance Company Wales presents a triple bill of dynamic dance from world class choreographers and home-grown talent.
Stephen Petronio’s latest work Water Stories, accompanied by original music from Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer Atticus Ross (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) was inspired by the abundant and magical waterscapes of Wales and features original visuals from Matthew Brandt.
Lee Johnston and lighting designer Joe Fletcher present They Seek To Find The Happiness They Seem, a duet using existing forms of choreography, lighting and costume design to explore dislocation and separation within a relationship.
In Stephen Shropshire’s Mythology, created in 2012, the music score of Rzewski's Coming Together determines the structure of the movements in a mathematical and rational way.
Running time - approximately 1 hour 35 mins (including 2 intervals). The show consists of three pieces: Mythology by Stephen Shropshire (20mins), They Seek To Find The Happiness They Seem by Lee Johnston (13mins) & Water Stories by Stephen Petronio (25mins).
On Tuesday 25 March there will be a free post-show talk. Rehearsal Director and choreographer Lee Johnston will be joined by two of the Company’s dancers.
