The Other Canticles are inspired by five musical canticles by British composer Benjamin Britten. The pieces were written across his lifetime, and three of them were written as memorials. These dance films rouse the dynamic musical themes of each canticle and reflect the intense tone, power and spiritual elevation of these works across disparate cinematic landscapes.
