The Dance House



There are no performances listed for The Dance House

What's it about?
'Or young or old, or high or low, Ye all must to the dance house go!'

Taking inspiration from a medieval poem and woodcut depicting the 'Danse macabre', Bintley's second piece in the programme was prompted by the early death of a friend and colleague who was a dancer. Despite its light, witty tone, Shostakovich's music has darker resonances, which Bintley fully explores in this poignant re-interpretation of the 'Dance of Death'.

Not to be missed. Why?
Powerful dance that entertains but at the same time provokes thought.
