Ballet de l'Opera de Lyon: Sarabande, Critical Mass, Steptext
The Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon presents three modern works with choreography by Russell Maliphant, Benjamin Millepied and William Forsythe. These three choreographers were among the most important pioneersof the twentieth century, deconstructing the vocabulary of classicl ballet. Critical Mass by Russell Maliphant, is from 1998. Coming out of the penumbra, two dancers abandon themselves in a fight that is both fierce and harmonious, tense and relaxed. Sarabande by Benjamin Millepied was ceated in 2009. The work opens on a solo dancer, the alterntes sequences with two, three and four dancers. The dance is serene, fluid and flexible. Steptext, created in 1985, is one of the first ballets by William Forsythe.i In counterpoint to Bach's Ciaconna in D minor, the choreography is stretched to the extreme, with four performers - a woman dressed in red and her three male partners .
Saturday, February 24, 9 pm; Sunday, February 25, 6 pm
