Choreographer Idan Cohen shows work from his project to stage Gluck’s opera Orfeo ed Euridice as a contemporary dance work. Bringing together six dancers, five opera singers and costume designer Evan Clayton, Cohen’s production views Orpheus not as a god, but as an artist – a human who looks at the complex and sometimes violent history of western, classical opera and dance with eyes wide open, the dancing body serving as a living example of human strength and fragility. This pre-recorded showing will share excerpts of work in progress, and a discussion with the choreographer.
