Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo sets this work in a giddy, obsessive world charged with dynamic beauty and musicality. Six dancers bring choreographic wow to the gorgeous Sibelius violin concerto which seems to interrupt the dancers silence, creating a wonderful unison of searing freshness. Elo is resident choreographer of Boston Ballet and a former member of The Netherlands Dance Theatre, Cullberg Ballet and The Finnish National Ballet. Major companies around the world dance his critically acclaimed works.
