Fertile Ground: Twilight Dances
Audiences will have the chance to watch Fertile Ground’s current cohort of four young female professional dancers from the North East take to the stage as they perform new work created by artistic directors and former Rambert dancers Renaud Wiser and Malgorzata Dzierzon. Opening the evening will be a new film commission by celebrated movement and theatre artist Wendy Houstoun, featuring Fertile Ground dancers. Wiser and Dzierzon used Schubert’s beautiful String Quartet No. 14 (‘Death and the Maiden’, 1824) as inspiration to create a 45 minute piece that audiences will be able to enjoy with live musical accompaniment performed by Montreal based string quartet Quatuor Voxpopuli.
