What do you get when composer Matteo Fargion reduces Schubert’s Erlkönig to its basic structure and hands this over to six highly skilled dance artists and six renowned choreographers and theatre-makers to engage in a dialogue on stage? The answer is an extraordinary experiment yielding six very individual and personal solos.

Christopher Roman has been working with the Bulgarian performance artist Ivo Dimchev, Amancio Gonzalez with the London-based visual artist Hetain Patel, Jone San Martin with the British director, author and performer Tim Etchells, Ty Boomershine with the New York choreographer Beth Gill, Brit Rodemund with the London-based choreographer and dancer Lucy Suggate and Frédéric Tavernini with the French choreographer Noé Soulier. These distinctive voices come together to create work of pure dance, performance and dance theatre. Matteo Fargion is the seventh interlocutor as well as the composer of the music and the overall piece, in an evening that introduces the newly established DANCE ON ENSEMBLE.
