NORTHER BALLET MIXED PROGRAMME @ QUARRY HILL LEEDS

Recommended Posts

Northern Ballet are presenting a number of performances of a mixed programme at their bijoux home theatre from 09-18 February 2012.

 

This description of the evening is on the company website:

 

"See Northern Ballet up close and personal this February with Perpetual Motion, the Company’s first programme of short dance pieces in their new home.

 

Scottish Ballet's new Artistic Director Christopher Hampson shows off the dancers' strength with spins, jumps and beats in Perpetuum Mobile taking Bach’s Violin Concerto in E Major as its inspiration.

Rhapsody in Blue from Northern Ballet's I Got Rhythm, sees five couples dance to Gershwin's famous music. See the full-length ballet by Artistic Director David Nixon at Leeds Grand Theatre in May, preview it here first.

Glass Canon is a high-energy, mischievous and dynamic dance set to, and inspired by the music of Moishe’s Bagel choreographed by Daniel de Andrade.

Project#1 is Premier Dancer Kenneth Tindall's choreographic debut. Set to Dinah Washington and Max Richter’s stirring This bitter earth – On the nature of daylight it is a moving and accomplished piece from a promising young artist."

There is one matinee on Saturday 18th February. I've seen three of the pieces before and it looks to be a terrific show.

I like Perpetuum Mobile very much - don't suppose there's any chance of a mixed bill making its way down south ...

Sadly, it seems extremely unlikely. The programme for Spring was published on the back of recent programmes and there isn't even a season listed at Sadler's Wells. I'll post the Spring details (as published on the programme) on a separate thread.

Northern Ballet open their mixed programme, titled Perpetual Motion, on Thursday this week at their home - Quarry Hill in Leeds. It's a small theatre and will give a great opportunity to see the dancers up-close. There is one matinee on 18th February.
