Requiem for Aleppo
Following its sell out world premiere at Sadler’s Wells, Requiem for Aleppo comes to Edinburgh for a very special gala performance in aid of Syria Relief.
A ‘brilliant act of love, remembrance and empathy' (Fardous Bahbouh, Oscar winning documentarian), this exceptional collaboration provides a unique expression of life in Aleppo. The real testimonies of former residents are powerfully brought to the stage through David Cazalet’s ‘big evocative score’ (The Times) and choreographer Jason Mabana’s a 'crack team of international dancers' (The Stage), including BBC Dancer of the Year Jacob O'Donnell.
This profound, haunting and mesmeric production offers a unique opportunity to be part of a collective expression of solidarity for the people of Syria.
