A haunting new reflection on isolation and loss
“Few composers have the ability to create and sustain such varied and distinctive sound worlds as compellingly as Anna Clyne.”
An intense, deeply moving new Digital Short by director/choreographer Kim Brandstrup showcases composer Anna Clyne's gorgeous musical setting of poetry by Emily Dickinson. Between the Rooms is a poignant meditation on solitude, featuring two internationally celebrated ballet dancers, the extraordinary Alina Cojocaru and Matthew Ball.
Soprano Joélle Harvey is the vocal soloist, joined by members of the Brooklyn-based orchestra The Knights, conducted by Eric Jacobsen.
