PIER DANCE
The adventure begins with the planning of the trip at the Pier. A rhythmic dance fills the first section of the piece, and it submerges us in the heart of this place, where the ships (galleys) are being supplied and getting ready for departure.

GALLEYS

After a long morning of preparations, the sound of a drum roll mixed with the French horns and trumpets indicate us the time of departure. Once the journey has begun, the calmness of the gelid Antarctic waters introduces us in a magical place, where big mountains of ice appear from under the water, forming a unique and captivating landscape.

ANTARTCTIC

After travelling through the mountains of ice we submerge ourselves in the heart of the Antarctic, where the quietness will quickly be interrupted by a huge avalanche of snow.

MELTING-AVALANCHE

During this section, which is purely rhytmic, the galleys try to avoid colliding with the icebergs, and fight the hard weather conditions until they finally, and after wrestling with mother Nature, can safely escape the conditions.

SOLITUDE

Once danger has ceased, a moment of loneliness and ease (portrayed by the cello solo) surrounds the cold waters. With the sunrise a new day begins, and the expedition can finally return home.
