Promising to break the mold on contemporary dance and choral performance, award-winning choreographer Olivier Wevers and composer Eric Banks collaborate on an entirely original new creation based on the sensual poetry of Constantine Cavafy. The poems explore expressions of fear, hope, 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.
