A celebration of the year in folk dance, Through the Seasons, gives audiences a chance to experience a journey through the year of folk dance through an original artistic collaboration of exceptional musicianship and spellbinding storytelling and audio-visual design. The event showcases stunning arrangements of traditional dance tunes and songs, bringing their innovative and playful style to life through both music, image and spoken word, with all the joy of a summer’s festival to the thrill of a winter’s fireside rapper sword-dance.
