Standing Stones is a major new dance work conceived for Cathedral spaces. Jacky Lansley will draw on her extensive experience of site specific work to approach these special and ancient spaces. Standing Stones aims to celebrate the timeless continuity of Cathedrals and the magnificence of their architectural landscapes through dance, visual image and music. The choreography uses the beautiful Mozart Clarinet Quintet K.V.581 played live by members of the Cornish Sinfonia.

“Lansley allows the music to sing for itself, the dancers seeming to hear and respond to it as if the clarinet were bird song and she gives it space to breathe within her movement.”

“Cathedrals have demonstrated the great synthesis of art and architecture since at least the middle ages and it is a great privilege to create a choreographic work that will celebrate and be inspired by this special history.”
