'It was touching, eccentric, wry, surprising, profound. I adored the nods to surrealist art... there was so much there' (Audience member).

A new production of the iconic Vesalii Icones, written in 1969. This is Peter Maxwell Davies’ rarely performed classic work of concert-hall music theatre that superimposes the Stations of the Cross onto 16th-century anatomical drawings by Vesalius to create an extraordinarily dramatic, multi-layered fusion of dance and live music. New choreography by Matthew Hawkins, performed by Hawkins and Soraya Ham, illustrations by Brian Hartley, design by Calum Duncan and lighting by Simon Gane. Part of Made in Scotland.
