Summary:Dancing Ledge was made for English National Ballet to a score by John Adams. Dancing Ledge is part of the Dorset Coast - the edge between water and land always shifting with the tide.
Analysis:‘The piece began with Koen Onzia speedily dancing amongst enormous suspended gauze figures. As more dancers appear on stage a giant metal revolving drum rotates above them - gaps in the structures reveal lights that cause changing patterns on the stage’ (Siobhan Davies, 2009).
