Singing Light - Contemporary Dance Performances. The tour is jointly funded by the Welsh Government, STEM Dance Kampni, Bangalore; Media Mix from Chennai and British Council in Delhi.
The tour includes performances of B/olero & Black Milk by Ohad Naharin and By Singing Light by Stephen Petronio. Ohad Naharin, one of the world's great horeographers, presents B/olero, a hypnotic female duet with elegant costumes set to Ravel's famous score while Black Milk is a ceremonial dance that encapsulates the tribal physicality of five male dancers. Inspired by the poetry of the famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, Petronio created By Singing Light, a profound dance response to the power of Thomas as an artist of international stature. Performed to the lyrical, yet driven music of Son Lux, influenced by the Welsh songs of Mansel Thomas, this is a moving dance from one of the world's leading choreographers. Each performance will be introduced by the Artistic Director - Ann Sholem. In addition 'wrap around activities' include workshops, master classes, symposium, photographic exhibitions and media opportunities.
