CARMINA BURANA AND EXTREMELY CLOSE


Carmina Burana is based upon a rediscovered manuscript dating back to the 11th century that was found by a Bavarian librarian in a monastery in 1803. Twenty-four of the poems were then set to music by Carl Orff in 1936. Nicolo Fonte illuminates the evocative score bringing these poems to life in new and unexpected ways. 

Part art installation and part movement drama, Cerrudo’s Extremely Close creates a sense of restlessness throughout as dancers negotiate their way through a perpetually shifting environment. Propelled by changing landscapes, Cerrudo weaves a mesmerizing spell of movement punctuated by fleeting moments of intense intimacy with music by composers Philip Glass and Dustin O’Halloran. The piece evokes a haunting and irrevocable sense of separation, that sometimes home is the brief connective peace you find before the world shifts again.
