CHOREOGRAPHY: Alexander Whitley
MUSIC: John Woolrich’s Ulysses Awakes, played by 12 Ensemble
Film showing as part of 12 Ensemble's tour:
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.
"[the] choreographer’s pieces explore the human mind as much as the body"
