by Philip Glass
performed by Cheap Date and Kevos
“Philip Glass’s propulsive, extrovert minimalism has made him one of the most popular living composers, a reputation reinforced by his hit film music (Koyaanisqatsi, The Hours), his collaborations with rock icons (The Low Symphony after David Bowie), and his critically acclaimed theatre works (Einstein on the Beach).
Glassworks, for an eclectic ensemble of saxophones, flutes, horns, strings and piano, is a suite of six shorter pieces. It is music that dances and pulses with a special life all of its own. At times ecstatic and at times wistful, its motoric rhythms and gorgeous harmonies are ideal partners to dance and movement and as at home high above the Cornish sea as they are in a New York loft.
The live physical interpretation of the music is performed by a Dance ensemble bought together specifically for the project. Devised by choreographer/director of Cheap Date, Grace Murdoch and the Dancers, the movement embodies the unique sounds and energy of Glassworks in this iconic venue. ” To book tickets, visit:
