The context and material for this project are rooted in the histories of the Bethlem hospital (Southwark, London). The music relays the story of 'wondering anticks [sic]' through the recreation of the annual patients' ball.
Movement 01 \\ 15.02 - 16.02, the prelude to the project, presents an empty ballroom, gradually filling as the musicians begin to play.
Movement 02 \\ 15.07 - 19.07 shifts between jig and waltz motifs as the dance unfolds.
