Running time: 2 hours 40 minutes (approx, subject to change)
Crystal Pite is renowned for her flowing, organic and poetic style, and with her surprising and innovative approach she has succeeded in bringing her dance to the attention of a wide audience. She is fascinated by familiar storylines of love, conflict and loss, and the body’s role in providing the illustrative shape of those stories. In Pite’s vision, life is an epic tale, and she aims to reflect the viewer’s own tale in her ballets. This programme, for which she will create a completely new full-length ballet, is wholly devoted to Pite’s dance vocabulary.
