Within the Golden Hour is structured into sections, accentuated by Martin Pakledinaz's simple designs. The dancers are costumed in muted hues of greens, browns, blues and purples, creating a sense of the bright orange light of the 'golden hour' before the sun sets. Around three central pas de deux, the ballet exhibits Wheeldon's characteristic complex handling of ensembles, in the process creating intricate lattice works that shift and mutate in this reflection on the beauty of movement.
