About the Show/Event
Information for San Francisco Ballet - Programme D: Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem/Bound To/Anima Animus at Sadler's Wells Theatre, Inner London (Dance or ballet). Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem is a personal and moving tribute to Trey McIntyre's grandfather who died after years of dementia. Vulnerability and tenderness combine with jocularity for an unsentimental work with accompanying folk songs by Chris Garneau. This is McIntyre's second work for SF Ballet. Bound To? by Christopher Wheeldon also addresses a prevalent 21st century concern ? addiction to smartphones. There are warnings beneath the humour in an exploration of how relationships can become dysfunctional when competing with social media. This is Wheeldon's 9th work specially created for SF Ballet, for which he has been choreographing for over 15 years. Anima Animus - For his SF Ballet choreographic debut David Dawson offers a rich mix of contrasts and explores the fluid space between opposites, most notably the roles of male and female and how they view each other, with a score by Ezio Bosso.
