CCN Ballet de Lorraine: Unknown Pleasures, London, October 2016


Recommended Posts

The company is performing an unknown (to the audience) selection of pieces at Sadler's Wells next weekend. I don't know whether to brave it or not. Has anyone seen this company? Does its rep bear any relationship to ballet at all or is it at the extreme end of contemporary dance (what ever that means)?

Their web site http://ballet-de-lorraine.eu/en/ gives an insight into their repertoire (Forsythe, Tharp, Cunningham, others) and the current season. http://ballet-de-lorraine.eu/en/saison provides more information about the piece at SW. A new production. 5 different choreographers who remain anonymous, from different generations.

 

It sounds very intriguing.

 

The company performed at the Linbury last March. http://www.roh.org.uk/news/kevin-ohare-welcomes-ballet-de-lorraine-to-the-linbury-studio-theatre
