ab [intra], ‘from within’ in Latin, is ‘dazzling, electrifying, heartfelt’ – Limelight
Exploring our primal instincts, our impulses and our visceral responses, ab [intra] is a dynamic and powerful masterwork.
The music fuses lush cello with ambient electronica and the exquisite dancers occupy a visually arresting ethereal world.
This is a ferociously physical and emotional piece which will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.
