An inner voyage in three pieces

Jiří Kylián's pure and refined Evening Songs are set to Dvořák’s a cappella songs of the same name, and performed live by a choir. Set to Steve Reich’s extraordinary music and percussion, Kylián’s Falling Angels is a mesmerizing study for eight dancers, a powerful work of the highest order. Finally, Stephan Thoss’s Searching for Home, an inner voyage into the multiplicity of the self, features 16 dancers in a piece inspired by the music of Philip Glass and the images it evokes. Magical, spellbinding.
