Scottish Ballet-Ceci Est Mon Corps/Emergence description
Scotland’s national ballet company returns with a double bill of two radically different, but equally powerful works.
Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Crystal Pite “one of the world’s most vital dance-makers” (The Times) transforms the 38-strong corps de ballet into a swarming horde of insects for Emergence – a journey into a subterranean hive where classical ballet transforms into strange insect-like behaviour.
Angelin Preljocaj’s MC 14/22 (Ceci est mon corps) is a hymn to the male body. Preljocaj evokes biblical imagery through the 12 male dancers who surrender to both tender care and wretched cruelty in this glorification of masculinity.
