Following its successful international tour, Sadler’s Wells is delighted to present the return of 6000 Miles Away, devised and performed by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Sylvie Guillem. Widely recognised as one of the world’s greatest dancers, Guillem stars in this critically lauded evening of work by three of today’s most important choreographers: Mats Ek, William Forsythe and Jirí Kylián.
The evening features William Forsythe’s “profoundly beautiful” (The Observer) duet Rearray and acclaimed Swedish choreographer Mats Ek’s solo for Guillem, Bye. Jirí Kylián’s duet 27’52” completes the bill, performed by Aurélie Cayla and Lukas Timulak.
In 2012, Sylvie Guillem won the Critics’ Circle National Dance Award for Outstanding Female Performance (Modern) and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance for 6000 miles away.
The performance on Tuesday 21 May is in aid of Sea Shepherd, a charity Sylvie Guillem supports. http://seashepherd.org
