Three choreographers, four dancers, five ballet pieces opened last night at the Sadlers Wells Theatre.  Pictures from the general rehearsal.

Short maybe, but very sweet to my eyes. Splendid in fact!

2x2 was utterly mesmerising, and I'd happily pay good money to see either dancer again. The only piece I wasn't too keen on was Present Past, but that was down to my personal preferences rather than the actual performance, I felt the music was completely incidental to the choreography and it didn't seem to link up with the rhythm of the 2 pieces at all. Fang-Yi Sheu's control was extremely impressive, with not a single muscle shaking even in the most demanding poses.


I'd love to see Yuan Yuan Tuan in a full length classical ballet one day...
