Three acclaimed choreographers each create inimitable dance works to the same piece of music, Beethoven's Grande Fugue op. 133. Lucinda Childs' interpretation exemplifies her meticulous precision and cool, complex classicism. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker responds with an uninhibited, masculine and non-classical vocabulary, whilst Maguy Marin creates an exhilarating whirlwind where life is reduced to a race against death. Trois Grandes Fugues marks a welcome return for the world class dancers of Lyon Opera Ballet who last performed at Sadler's Wells more than a decade ago.
