Set on a sparse wooden stage with a huge chandelier overhead, Broken Chords brings together musicians who dance and dancers who play to chronicle the intimate relationships that shape our lives. The work exposes the moments in your life where everything changes, where nothing seems tangible or fixed, and everything falls away.
Featuring live string arrangements based on the violin sonatas of baroque composer Heinrich von Biber, Broken Chords combines demanding dance, virtuoso musicianship, dark humour and playful theatricality.
