Night of ex­hil­a­rat­ing dance with ‘Dream’


Bray People - - NEWS -

THE NA­TIONAL Dance Com­pany Wales will come to Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre on Thurs­day and Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 7 and 8 for a triple bill of ex­hil­a­rat­ing dance.

The ac­claimed Dream, from world-renowned chore­og­ra­pher Christo­pher Bruce, is a breath-tak­ing cel­e­bra­tion of the ex­cel­lence and achieve­ment of Bri­tain in its Olympic year.

Dream has re­ceived stand­ing ova­tions from Lon­don to Shang­hai, Cardiff to Llan­dudno as au­di­ences are swept away by dance that re­joices in the sheer ex­u­ber­ance of phys­i­cal move­ment.

Ex­plor­ing the fan­tasy and rit­ual of wed­dings, No­ces by French chore­og­ra­pher An­gelin Preljo­caj is an as­ton­ish­ing spec­ta­cle of dy­namic move­ment and evoca­tive cos­tumes per­formed to Igor Stravin­sky's ex­quis­ite score, Les No­ces. Award-win­ning Com­pany dancer and House Chore­og­ra­pher Elee­sha Drennan presents her lat­est work with a record­ing of a newly-com­mis­sioned per­cus­sion con­certo from BBC Na­tional Orches­tra of Wales' res­i­dent com­poser Mark Bow­den fea­tur­ing soloist Dame Eve­lyn Glen­nie.

In­ter­ested in see­ing how the dancers pre­pare their bod­ies for the evening's show? Come to Watch Dance Class to find out. For ticket hold­ers only, con­tact box of­fice for more de­tails.
