Knitting together a rich tapestry of music and sound, Reflections in Swan Lake - Dance Connections 2, delves into traditional mythology and folklore to unearth the original narratives behind the iconic ballet Swan Lake. Bringing such stories into the light of the present, choreographer Rachel Birch-Lawson, creates a vivid and, at times, risk-ridden world, in which questions of identity are freely explored.

Drawing on traditions of storytelling, this captivating show examines how different themes have been approached through the generations, from Swan Lake to Audrey Niffenegger’s Raven Girl. Combining vocal soundscapes and improvisation, Reflection in Swan Lake finds a dynamic synergy between movement, music and text.
