Don’t just take a lunchbreak, take a break from the everyday. Join us for Alice Topp’s Aurum, which premiered in 2018 to lavish praise from audiences and critics. This work combines powerful movement, raw emotion and a stunning gilded design. Accompanied by live orchestra, this work will also be performed as part of our Verve season.
