Description

A truly trance-inducing performance inspired by three masterpieces from Steve Reich, interpreted by the new generation. A string quartet and a dancer will sweep you away in the powerful confrontation of dance and music amidst hypnotic images and soundscapes. Choreographer Isabella Soupart and the MP4 Quartet take on Pendulum Music, Different Trains (1989 Best Contemporary Composition Grammy Award winner) and WTC 9/11, bringing forth intimate reflections with worldwide historical drama. The Steve Reich Project is a pulsating fusion of dance, music and video art, a raw, deeply moving statement on the frailty of the human condition.

Edinburgh Guide (4/5 stars) 16 days ago

It's always exciting when musicians join the dancers on stage and in this case a brilliant success. The Steve Reich Project takes 3 of Reich's compositions; 'Pendulum Music', 'Different Trains' and 'WTC 9/11' and has sensitively and creatively woven a dance around each piece of music.  Shantala Pèpe danced for...

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 18 days ago

If this was billed as Music and took place in a concert hall, the MP4 Quartet’s perfomance of three pieces by Steve Reich, Pendulum Music, Different Trains and WC 9/11 would earn five stars for their superb rendition, but confusingly this takes place in Dance Base, the Edinburgh home of...
