Chantry Dance presents ‘A matter of time’ – a mesmerising triple bill exploring our relationship with time created by award-winning producers and choreographers Rae Piper and Paul Chantry in collaboration with innovative director-choreographer Kristian Cunningham.
GHOST DANCES is danced to Nicholas Maw’s 1988 suite. A woman journeys through the past, present and future where the allusive ‘ghosts’ of the title are her fractured dreams and memories. She learns to reconcile the uncertainty of the future with lessons of the past to fully appreciate the present.
ARIADNE’S LAMENT is set to Roman poet Catullus’ carmen 64. Ariadne laments Theseus abandoning her and faces a desolate future. The work considers how certain human situations remain relevant no matter when they occur.
IN TIME OF DAFFODILS is inspired by ee cummings’ poem of the same name. This beautiful, evocative piece is a reminder of the simple things in life and that life is about journeys not destinations – the goal of living is to grow.
