Set to Maurice Ravel’s celebrated composition of 1928, “Bolero”, and costumed from the Sass & Bide SS12 collection. FUGUE is a powerful work, and a valuable addition to Dancenorth repertoire in 2012.
With a cast of 5 dancers, Raewyn creates a powerful and sinuous work, capturing the strength of Maurice Ravel’s mesmerizing score. Combining ideas from the Dancing Plague of 1518 in Strasbourg (then part of the Holy Roman Empire), and the structure of a Spanish Bullfight, FUGUE is choreographed to showcase the skills of our talented ensemble. An uplifting celebration, with sensational group work, FUGUE will be an inspiring display of extraordinary dance.
Fugue premiered nationally at the Australian Ballet 50th Anniversary season, Let’s Dance, State Theatre, Melbourne 7 – 16 June 2012.
