Based on the 1934 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel 'Tender Is the Night', Up & Down follows the rise and fall of a promising young psychoanalyst and one of his patients; presenting the bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears and fragments of patients' minds. The characters' own ups and downs masterfully recreated by Boris Eifman and his dancers. Set in the Jazz Age - the piece evokes the unstoppable feast of life; the era of freedom, sensuality, and hedonism.
Eifman Ballet was established by Boris Eifman in 1977 and is one of the world's largest non-classical ballet Companies. Distinguished by its technique, dedication and high onstage intelligence, the Company is renowned among ballet fans the world over for works such as Tchaikovsky, Anna Karenina, Eugene Onegin, Rodin, Requiem and Red Giselle.
