The movement material, heavily influenced by the musical score (rewritten by Wim Hendrickx) celebrates moments of both virtuosity and simplicity. Together with the shifting atmosphere of the light, intensity of the performers and stately decor Requiem is an all round performance.
Requiem is most appealing to audiences consisting of adults/seniors and is sure to create spine tingling moments, as the viewer witnesses the coming together of these two disciplines within this beautiful ensemble production.
