Programme Note:
“All the wide sky
Was there to tempt him
As he steered himself towards heaven,
As the heat of sun struck his back
And where his wings were joined
Sweet-smelling fluid
Ran hot that once was wax.”
"Where are you, Icarus?"
"Damn this art. This wretched cleverness."

-Ovid, Metamorphoses
