About the show:
Life is a relationship game. Sometimes there are many other players, sometimes only one, and sometimes you’re on your own. Daniela Cardim’s Vertex, premiered by NEBT in 2016 to critical acclaim, is a spirited, dynamic response to Camargo Guarnieri’s music and the mesmerising drawings of Ann Christopher RA.
The shifting patterns and pairings of Ruth Brill’s Domino suggest a game of human dominoes. As they explore personal connections, the dancers’ different qualities shine through.
Rosamunde by Morgann Runacre-Temple is set to a modern arrangement of Schubert’s ‘Rosamunde Quartet’ by composer Tom Lane, playing with ideas of revealing and concealing.
Peter Leung’s All in passing explores the way relationships shift and morph as time passes, intertwined with an atmospheric electronic score by composer Nicholas Robert Thayer.
Unbridled Blood by Érico Montes is a playful response to Beethoven’s famous ‘Moonlight Sonata’, performed at Cheltenham Music Festival only in celebration of the composer’s 250th anniversary.
