Ballet performance orchestrated by Angelin Preljocaj, one of the world's leading choreographers offers two of his major works, danced by the Ballet de l'opéra de Paris. Songe de Médée, with music by Mauro Lanza and freely based on the Greek myth of Medea, explores a woman's soul, portraying her, paradoxically, as a tender loving mother and a tormented victim who sacrifices everything, including her children, for love. MC14/22 (Ceci Est Mon Corps) is a meeting of the spiritual and the carnal, drawing on St Mark's version of The Last Supper in the Bible: 'Take, eat: this is my body'. Created for twelve male dancers, Preljocaj's 'Apostles of Movement', and with soundscapes by Tedd Zahmal, this passionate work is a hymn to the male body, stripped down to its deepest reality, juxtaposing the glorification of strength and the condemnation of force.
Under the guidance of a Royal Academy of Dance trained instructor the viewer can watch a small class as they perform a series of basic steps. Specially devised to appeal to children, it comes with some netting and elastic so the children can make their own tutu and thus feel more involved.
