Matthew Hawkins & Red Note Ensemble

A new production and choreography of the iconic Peter Maxwell Davies work Vesalii Icones, performed at Edinburgh’s iconic Greyfriars Kirk.

Written in 1969 this is one of Peter Maxwell Davies’s classic works of concert-hall music theatre. An extraordinarily dramatic, multi-layered fusion of dance and music, its shape superimposes the 14 stations of the Cross on a series of 16th-century anatomical drawings by Vesalius, with a dancer and a solo cellist as the protagonists. 

Scored for the classic Fires of London Sextet line-up this work is filled with unconventional percussion instruments, a honky-tonk piano, allusions to foxtrots, as well as medieval and renaissance music.
