Silhouette

Choreographer Chirstopher Hampson
Performed by Scottish Ballet
Music Concert Champêtre by Francis Poulenc

Performed for the first time in the UK, Christopher Hampson's Silhouette is an exuberant celebration of ballet at its most classic. A joyful study of composer Francis Poulenc’s Concert Champêtre in this the 50th anniversary year of his death, Degas-styled dancers present clear, crisp lines in this multi-levelled journey from darkness into light.
