CHOREOGRAPHY: ALEXANDER WHITLEY
MUSIC: ULYSSES AWAKES BY JOHN WOOLRICH
DANCER: SAKEEMA CROOK
COMMISSIONED & PLAYED BY 12 ENSEMBLE
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"
