Ballet Cymru present 'Shadow Aspect' a brand new evening-length work choreographed by International choreographer Tim Podesta, starring Guest Principal Dancer of the Royal Ballet Mara Galeazzi. 'SHADOW ASPECT' refers to the unconscious aspect of the personality that the conscious mind does not identify in itself. In short, the shadow is the dark side where individuals are defined and bonded by their mutual feelings of isolation. "To know yourself, you must accept your dark side. To deal with others' dark sides, you must also know your dark side."
