CHOREOGRAPHY: Alexander Whitley

MUSIC: John Woolrich’s Ulysses Awakes, recording by 12 Ensemble

27 & 28 July, Part of a new Triple Bill (Noumena / Ulysses Awakes / Between Two Fires) at Messums Wiltshire


Ulysses Awakes was created in response to composer John Woolrich’s piece for strings of the same name and featured in a short film made as part of a residency at Aldeburgh Music. It takes inspiration from the text of Ulysses’ first aria in Claudio Monteverdi's opera Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patriaon which Woolrich’s piece was based.
