About the Show/Event

English National Ballet - The Forsythe Evening
Information for English National Ballet - The Forsythe Evening at Sadler's Wells Theatre, Inner London (Dance or ballet). One of the UK's leading Ballet Companies. In 2018, choreographer William Forsythe and our dancers gave audiences a high when we premiered Playlist (Track 1, 2). Juxtaposing ballet classicism and athleticism with the beats of neo-soul and house music, it left the crowd whooping and wanting to join in. In 2021, it returns - now expanded into Playlist (EP), with six music tracks ranging from Khalid and Barry White to Lion Babe, and up to 30 dancers on stage. This dance party just got bigger. Rounding out the triple bill are two stunning works. Blake Works I is a soulful piece for 21 dancers set to seven songs from James Blake's album The Colour in Anything. Solos, duets and intricate group formations reflect the poetic melodies and words of Blake's music. Approximate Sonata 2016 is a series of stripped down duets: their complex choreography surprises and seems to carve out the air around the dancers. Originally created in 1996, Forsythe reworked this piece for Paris Opera Ballet. We are proud to honour this master choreographer in a special programme celebrating his enduring love and curiosity for ballet.
