Sylvie Guillem: 6000 Miles Away

Sylvie Guillem
Sadler's Wells, Clerkenwell Thursday May 23 2013 19:30
Superstar ballerina Sylvie Guillem has left behind the big tutu ballets in favour of hand-picked collaborations in the contemporary sphere. Now in her late 40s, Guillem is still a stunning performer; she could read the phone book (or whatever the dance equivalent of that is) and still hold an audience's attention rapt. This triple bill has a little more to it than the telephone directory, however, with works by three of the most significant choreographers alive: Matz Ek, William Forsythe and Jirí Kylián. It's all thoughtful and beautiful stuff.
