This production showcases the work of multi-award winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor and Boston Ballet’s Finnish resident choreographer Jorma Elo. McGregor’s beautiful piece features nine male dancers dancing to the haunting music of Finnish composer Esa-Pekka Salonen’s “Lachen Verlernt” and “Nyx.”
The film begins in present-day Mexico, as Towers walks through Aztec ruins to his Médira home. As he cooks himself a sumptuous meal of fresh octopus, he ruminates over his childhood, his college years at Harvard, and his restaurants.
