Scotland’s national ballet company returns with a double bill of two radically different, but equally powerful works.
Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Crystal Pite “one of the world’s most vital dance-makers” (The Times) transforms the 38-strong corps de ballet into a swarming horde of insects for Emergence – a journey into a subterranean hive where classical ballet transforms into strange insect-like behaviour.
Angelin Preljocaj’s MC 14/22 (Ceci est mon corps) is a hymn to the male body. Preljocaj evokes biblical imagery through the 12 male dancers who surrender to both tender care and wretched cruelty in this glorification of masculinity.
Contains adult themes of violence and sexual nature.
