She Said - English National Ballet
Kde Sadler's Wells
English National Ballet’s triple bill features three new pieces created by world-class female choreographers Aszure Barton, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Yabin Wang. Between them, the trio have worked with some of the world’s top dance companies and artists – including Dutch National ballet (Lopez Ochoa), Sydney Dance Company (Barton) and Siri Larbi Cherkaoui (Wang). Set to a new score by Mason Bates, Aszure Barton creates a piece fuelled by the individuality of the dancers, while Annabelle Lopez Ochoa collaborates with director Nancy Meckler to present the story of iconic artist Frida Khalo. Closing the evening, Yabin Wang brings the Greek heroine Medea to real classical China , set against a flowing silk background and to new music by Jocelyn Pook.
