Music : Johannes Brahms
A monumental work, the German Requiem of Johannes Brahms is an elegy created following the loss of his mentor, composer Robert Schumann, and of his mother. Inspired by the solemn beauty of the piece, choreographer Andrew Skeels presents a poignant work that explores the profundity of human connections.
''The dance is inspired by Brahm's text for the 5th movement, which speaks of the importance of human connection. The text conjures images of how vital touch, empathy and bonding are to the human state. These states are explored through two characters in this section. ''
