The fantastic ambient music of Max Richter’s reworking (2012) of »The Four Seasons« (1725) inspired the British choreographer David Dawson to create this meditation on the cycle of life. Four parts complete the circle, formed and reformed by the bodies of the dancers within the spatial complex of the room, which is divided into four elements. The heart of the piece is mankind itself, buffered by change whether immobile or in movement, creating new dimensions of perception, energy and possibility in many timeless instances, caught between life and death, always anticipating and never knowing.
