SPEAKING IN LIGETI
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 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. Co-produced with Vancouver New Music.
