MonteverdiChoreographer Alain Platel is known for shocking audiences with his unusual and violent productions. Sky Arts 2 presents Platel’s 2006 interpretation of Monteverdi’s Vespers. Incorporating sexual scenes and religious themes, this is one of his most provocative pieces which brings together ten dancers and ten baroque musicians.

Sophie Fiennes’s documentary presents the controversial piece alongside interviews from Platel and the dancers themselves, which give extra insight into the disturbing work.
