A fascinating double bill of contemporary dance and ballet that takes us from darkness to light and from Pergolesi to Beethoven.

This stimulating double bill, by choreographers Edward Clug and the late Uwe Scholz, is a journey from darkness to light: from the mournful lament of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater to Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, which Wagner described as "the apotheosis of dance".

Romanian-born Clug interprets Pergolesi's music by confronting male and female and underlining the eros-thanatos dyad with contrasting colours. Scholz, on the other hand, created a choreography with eminently classical roots to visualize Beethoven's symphony.

A festive celebration of the bodies of male and female dancers that is one of the Canadian company's flagship programmes.
