With dancers from BBoy's Attic and Company Decalage Mickaël 'Marso' Rivière choreographer Nicholas Collon conductor Aurora Orchestra
Juxtaposing breaking (breakdance) and orchestral music as never previously attempted, Battle sees Aurora collaborate with acclaimed breaker collective Company Decalage and choreographer Mickaël ‘Marso’ Rivière. An explosive programme ranges from the virtuosic baroque fireworks of Biber’s Battalia to an orchestral arrangement of Shostakovich’s monumental Third String Quartet, and a new commission from Julian Philips for chamber orchestra and breakers.
Promoted by Aurora Orchestra in association with LSO Productions Ltd with support from Arts Council England and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
