National Dance Company Wales presents a vibrant and exciting repertoire of dance this Spring with the World
Premiere of Folk, by its new Artistic Director, Caroline Finn.
Folk will feature Finn’s darkly comic expressions of life and people using her quirky and highly engaging choreographic style. Exploring themes of social dynamics, familiar and surreal scenes and characters come alive to an eclectic and enchanting musical landscape.
Alexander Ekman’s Tuplet, is a witty and high octane exploration of the simple notion of rhythm.
The dancers’ breath and bodies create a powerful drumming soundtrack, combined with pounding electronic accompaniment, as well as the familiar and evocative jazz sounds of Fly Me to the Moon. This fierce physicality combines with joyful, carefree dance that really shows off the personality and virtuosity of the dancers.
Folk and Tuplet will be performed at all our venues and will be joined by one of our other repertoire pieces:
Set to the driving, rousing sounds of Ravel’s Boléro, and music by Arvo Pärt, Walking Mad is full of wit and laced with an unsettling edge of madness.
