Choreographer Joshua Beamish pays tribute to the most romantic of melancholias. Saudade - a Portuguese word that represents a deep, constant desire for a reality that does not, and probably cannot, exist -investigates loss, memory, and the longing for something unattainable. Six male dancers merge ballet with street-style, conjuring up fleeting intimacies in a series of ghostly solos, duets and group passages, set to a cello score by Hildur Guðnadóttir.
