The Shape of Sound

After the sensational success of Casanova, award-winning choreographer Kenneth Tindall returns with a revolutionary new take on a Vivaldi classic.

The Shape of Sound sets 14 dancers to the hypnotic score of The Four Seasons reimagined by Max Richter. The piece takes inspiration from the seasons themselves and our human response to those seasons, conjuring feelings of hope and sadness.

Tindall's incandescent new dance work celebrates the purity of classical ballet lines with the sculpture and lightness of the shapes, against the dynamic and physical injections of contemporary dance. With his cast of dancers, Tindall explores the energy of each body moving together, as well as their patterns that can be united with Richter's musical structure.
