NDC Wales presents Awakening
National Dance Company Wales presents Awakening. Three unique dances to amuse and amaze; After Image, Revellers’ Mass and Tundra.
Afterimage is a journey of fleeting images; of appearance and disappearance. Mirrors are used on stage to form a unique theatrical experience where the past and the present collide with a poetic & creative style of dance.
Revellers’ Mass delves into a sumptuous world of ritual. An unlikely group gathers for a dinner party, where convictions, tradition and social etiquette are put to the test in an unexpected evening of revelry. The animated choreography and curious characters are Inspired by iconic paintings and historical events.
Tundra traverses barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life. This dance tears pages from the history books on Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution, revitalising old ideas with renewed meaning.The bold design is inspired by art and cinema. A dance so robotically precise it’s as mesmerizingly beautiful as it is astounding.
Choreography by: Fernando Melo, Caroline Finn and Marcos Morau.
