The music of the great Hungarian composer György Ligeti (1923 – 2006) provides inspiration for this unique dance and music creation directed and choreographed by MARTA MARTA Productions’ esteemed Artistic Director Martha Carter. 'Speaking in Ligeti' features five accomplished dancers, Hayden Fong, Thoenn Glover, Heather Laura Gray, Delphine Leroux, and
Nic Lydiate; and four musicians of the Microcosmos String Quartet,
Marc Destrubé, Peggy Lee, Tawnya Popoff, and Andrea Siradze. The quartet’s presence onstage is intrinsic to the work, and the lighting design by
Jason Dubois plays an important role in creating very specific and intimate connections between the musicians and the dancers.

Presented through The Dance Centre’s Artist-in-Residence program as part of the Global Dance Connections series.

"Carter, a contemporary choreographer whose works incorporate ballet, urban dance forms, performance art and multimedia technology, has been known for creating pieces that can best be described as infamous. Thus, the thought of her taking on an icon of classical New Music...invites curiosity."

– Paula Citron, Globe and Mail

"A composer who refused to play by the rules...Ligeti is the 20th century composer with the most cosmic connotations in popular consciousness."

– Tom Service, The Guardian
