This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Martin Lawrance's Run For It, William Forsythe's Workwithinwork and Hans van Manen's Five Tangos make up the national company's diverse autumn bill.
Run For It – Martin Lawrance
Workwithinwork – William Forsythe
Five Tangos – Hans van Manen
Scottish Ballet presents an extraordinary triple bill tracing a line through dance from the highly physical to the seductively graceful.
Fresh from its world premiere as part of the Cultural Olympiad this summer, Martin Lawrance’s Run For It is a high-energy work inspired by the grace of Olympic athletes.
Classical discipline meets playfulness in William Forsythe’s Workwithinwork, a study of the possibilities of motion. The dancers create a breathtaking display of fascinating angles and lines, leaving traces of their movements as they go.
Drawing the evening to a fiery close is Hans van Manen’s Five Tangos. Performed by Scottish Ballet for the first time, this sizzling work combines classical ballet with the passion and dramatic flourishes of the tango.
'William Forsythe’s Workwithinwork is Scottish Ballet to the core. You can’t fake Forsythe – you’ve either got it or you haven’t – and Scottish Ballet’s take on it was nothing short of remarkable.' – Scotsman
