Composer Peteris Vasks’ music, its visceral drama and its message of the cycle of life inspired the contemporary dance piece The Seasons.
Its theme unfolds through the story of a Dancer whose typically short “shelf-life” becomes an expression of accelerated humane existence more acutely aware of the passing of time than most of us.
Recited by multi-award winning pianist Reinis Zariņš and choreographed by Kirill Burlov (Ballet Soloist, formerly of Latvian National Opera, Northern Ballet, Rambert, Michael Clark), Peteris Vasks' The Seasons
portrays a dancer’s life from youth to maturity set against stunning sceneries of nature.
