Event Price: Free admission

The RPS Drummond Fundsupports an exciting new collaboration, and a new collaboration between composer Julian Philips and choreographer Mickaël 'Marso' Rivière. Maxamorphosis features Max Baillie as viola soloist alongside Aurora Orchestra and dancers from Company Decalage and Bboy's Attic. The evening's explosive programme also ranges from the virtuosic baroque fireworks of Biber’s Battalia to an orchestral arrangement of Shostakovich’s monumental third string quartet.
