Drawing influences from Peteris Vask’s original violin concerto which he described as ‘ a sense of light-filled sorrow’. With themes of dominating forces, exile and segregation caused by Latvia’s turbulent struggle for independence, Distant Light was conceived and created in collaboration with Royal Northern Sinfonia. Working alongside lead violinist Bradley Creswick and the orchestra, Lo-Giudice Dance’s choreography was performed alongside the RNS at Sage Gateshead in March 2013.

Throughout  the collaboration Anthony and the dancers worked alongside Creswick to create a choreography reflective of the commission yet providing a new stimuli to the concerto Vasks had created during his turbulent years, inspired by the relationship of violinist and soloist.
