DC2: Reflections in Swan Lake (2017)
Knitting together a rich tapestry of music and sound, Dance Connection 2: Reflections in Swan Lake delves into traditional mythology and folklore to unearth the original narratives behind the iconic ballet Swan Lake.
Bringing these stories into the harsh light of the present, choreographer Rachel Birch-Lawson creates a vivid and, at times, risk-ridden world, in which questions of gender and identity are freely explored. Drawing on traditions of storytelling, the show examines how such themes have been approached through the generations, from Swan Lake to Audrey Niffenegger’s Raven Girl. Combining contemporary movement with improvised vocal soundscapes, Reflections in Swan Lake finds a dynamic synergy between movement, music, and text
