La Veronal, Siena. @Southbank Centre

Last night I was at the Southbank Centre to see Siena, the Barcelona choreographer Marcos Morau’s company La Veronal. A fascinating dance exploring  memories, strength and fragility of the human body.

There is a section in the dance which is in slow motion reminding me of the fantastic and atmospheric video work of Bill Viola. This is dynamic choreography, not an easy watch, but it is rewarding, posing many questions for the viewer too consider.
