Approaching Ecstasy

An engaging new Dance Collaboration with The Esoterics and the St Helens String Quartet

New choreography by Olivier Wevers
New composition by Eric Banks

Promising to break the mold on contemporary dance and choral performance, Olivier Wevers and Eric Banks collaborate on an entirely original new creation based on the sensual poetry of Constantine Cavafy. The poems explore expressions of remembered love and excruciating beauty. Watch as Casey Curran’s set reveals the stage in perpetual motion, while the poetry woven through Eric Banks’ original score comes to light with compelling choreography by Olivier Wevers.
