Cryptic’s fiercely poignant, multi-disciplinarily staging of a David Lang double bill, directed by Josh Armstrong.

Lang’s Pulitzer Prize winning The Little Match Girl Passion combines Hans Christian Anderson’s heartbreaking tale with J.S. Bach’s St Matthews Passion. In a unique presentation of this previously un-staged masterpiece, singers Nicola Corbishley, Clare Wilkinson, Chris Watson and Jimmy Holliday are joined by dancer Emma Snellgrove, with vocal ensemble, percussion and dancer bringing the story of the little match girl to life.

World to Come is Lang’s breathtaking interpretation of man’s journey from the physical to the spiritual world of the afterlife. Performed by Southbank Centre Artist in Residence, cellist Oliver Coates, this atmospheric piece is accompanied by commissioned visuals from Irish video artist Jack Phelan.
