Bach, Lutosławski, Beethoven.
Order, Chaos, Adventure.
Join Scottish Ensemble and Andersson Dance for the world premiere of their second collaboration. Musicians and dancers blur their roles and break the rules in this new co-production exploring the very human paradox at the root of three extraordinary pieces of music: our need to seek out order amongst disorder, and our urge to tear it all apart.
From amongst the overwhelming precision of Bach’s Art of Fugue and the dark, wild chaos of Lutosławski’s Preludes emerges a piece that has been both celebrated and derided, lauded and dismissed: Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue.
Combining dynamic choreography with razor-sharp live musical performance, Prelude – skydiving from a dream delves into the delicious contradictions of the subconscious mind, from the absurd to the logical, the irrational to the soothingly clear.
