Programme Note

Helios Choros I – III is a triptych ballet about the Greek god Helios, the sun god, son of Hyperion, depicted as driving his chariot across the sky from east to west daily. Choros in ancient Greek drama means a band of dancers whose singing, dancing, and narration provide explanation and elaboration of the main action. It is a 45 minute landscape of subtle and playful music being juxtaposed with high-energy passion and overwhelming orchestral colours exploring a unique sound world.
