Faster, louder, deeper – in this stirring triple bill, three of the world’s greatest contemporary choreographers take you on a visceral ride.
Christopher Wheeldon’s DGVc: Danse à Grande Vitesse takes its title and its thrilling momentum from Michael Nyman’s MGV: Musique à Grande Vitesse, composed for the inauguration of France’s fast train, TGV. With the mastery of pas de deux and pattern shown in After the Rainc, Wheeldon hurtles his dancers through a high-speed journey.
Ji?i Kylian’s Forgotten Land, with its haunting seascape and swirling dresses, is like a Edvard Munch painting come to life. Set to Benjamin Britten’s powerful Sinfonia da Requiem, the fluid movement speaks of yearning, mourning and escape.
William Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated famously exploded and extended ballet technique. Chic, sleek and dangerous, the dancers prowl the stage like panthers before hurling themselves into ultra-stretched poses, punctuated by the electronic collisions of the score.
