Marcos Morau is internationally noted for his beautifully designed choreographies and inventive language of movement. Pablo, the tour of his first production in the Netherlands, was a huge box office success.
With Cathedral, Marcos Morau, a rising star in the European theatre world, is making a new major production for Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, inspired by the music of world-famous composer Arvo Pärt. The music is performed live by Sinfonia Rotterdam, which enhances the theatricality and intensity of the performance.
Accompanied by the spiritual music of Arvo Pärt, pure as a heartbeat, Cathedral asks us to reflect on the nature of existence. About the mystery of man amid the grandeur of nature and the infinite universe. Morau places the dancers in an equally impressive decor with life-size video projections and a spectacular lighting design. The encounter with a metres-high meteor on stage is the enigmatic opening of a sublime dance performance.
