Based on classical ballet technique, the British choreographer David Dawson creates contemporary, virtuoso and often emotionally charged works of art that endear him to the press, the public and leading ballet companies all over the world. On April 29, in celebration of International Dance Day, we are launching the film recording of Dawson's latest creation METAMORPHOSIS, a choreographic five-part about "hope and humanity, about finding light in darkness".
‘METAMORPHOSIS is a vehicle for hope, it is about going on, not giving up, about the proverbial road we travel from winter to spring, about the belief that light is shining at the end of the tunnel’
You can watch the world premiere METAMORPHOSIS for free
below and on our YouTube channel from 29 April.
Set to Philip Glass’s music, choreographer David Dawson’s new piece – created mostly over Zoom – is a shimmering delight.
Dawson's style is deeply classical, but also entirely in line with today's fashion. In METAMORPHOSIS, he tells a story about hope in an almost lustfully elegant style, to the well-known music of Philip Glass.
Lyrical dancers with a phenomenal technique.
