New Ages of Man

New Ages of Man

The Fonteyn Room, The Royal Opera House,
London, UK
19 May 2005

Working in collaboration with the Royal Ballet, ‘New Ages of Man’ was a performance featuring choreography from Vanessa Fenton and electronic music in three dimensional sound by Illustrious.

Based on traditional Maypole tunes in keeping with the style of dance, the eight minute suite composed by Illustrious was spatialised in 3D sound to echo the movements of the dancers.

For the performance, costumes were provided by Central St Martins under-graduate Josephina Sundt, whose giant crochet designs helped earn the piece the L’Oreal Total Look award.
