Alain Platel founded Les Ballets C. de B. in 1984. A dynamic dance and theatre collective, the company is renowned for its powerful theatrical dance performances. Les ballets C de la B return to Southbank Centre with their new creation Ashes. This piece looks at how people deal with mortality and what they are ready to do (or not) in order to keep hold of all that they have attained. It is about the duality of life and the battle between holding on to something, and the art and difficulty of letting go. Dancer and choreographer Koen Augustijnen collaborates with the composer Wim Selles, who has arranged music by Handel for the work. The evening also includes live performance by alto Steve Dugardin, in a duet with soprano Irene Carpentier, and five musicians. Les Ballet C de la B - Koaen Augustijnen website
