(Click on images to enlarge)
Choreographer: Piers Gielgud
Designer: Jane Wildgoose
Music by Claudio Monteverdi, Fats Waller and Nine Inch Nails

“This wonderful epic retells the Orpheus story using spectacular design concepts, thumpingly good music and dancing at its best” - Edinburgh Courier and Advertiser

For The Downward Spiral's Hell scenes, Jane Wildgoose's costumes featured anatomical drawings from the works of the Renaissance anatomist, Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564), enlarged to life size.

For the set she projected illustrations from the works of the anatomist Bernard Siegfried Albinus (1697-1770), and scenes from the collage novels of Max Ernst (1891-1976), onto floodlit fabric.
