Requiem For Aleppo

About: Requiem for Aleppo is a new production bringing together 12 dancers from across the world. The original music is a combination of Requiem Mass lyrics set to choral music, linked by Arabic poetry from the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. This represents the richness and diversity of Aleppo’s musical heritage. The score is interwoven throughout with people from Aleppo telling their stories. The voices are from young and old and represent all parts of society. Their testament is designed to get to the human tragedy beyond the politics.
