Men in Motion

Ivan Putrov’s celebration of the male dancer returns for two nights only.

22 Nov - 23 Nov 2017

International ballet superstar Ivan Putrov assembles a cast of award-winning dancers for his latest Men in Motion programme exploring the changing role of the male dancer. Spanning 100 years in 100 minutes, Men in Motion pays homage to great dancers and choreographers of the past and showcases some of the most exciting artists of the present.

Legendary dancer Irek Mukhamedov is joined by Men in Motion regulars Daniel Proietto (Norwegian National Ballet), Marian Walter (Principal, Berlin State Ballet), Giovanni Princic (Dutch National), Timofej Andrijashenko (Soloist, La Scala) and Matthew Ball (Royal Ballet First Soloist) and new recruits Anton Lukovkin (former Soloist English National Ballet), Mathieu Ganio (Etoile, Paris Opera Ballet) and sole ballerina Francesca Hayward (Royal Ballet Principal).

Featuring choreography from Fokine and Nureyev to Christopher Bruce, Russell Maliphant and a new work by Arthur Pita created for Irek Mukhamedov. Putrov will dance the role made famous by Nijinsky in Fokine’s Le Spectre de la rose with Francesca Hayward as the young girl. Daniel Proietto creates a new work The Mockracy and reprises his role in Russell Maliphant’s much loved Afterlight (Part One) inspired by Nijinsky’s drawings, while Matthew Ball will dance with Ivan Putrov in a new duet by Ludovic Ondiviela. Marian Walter and Timofej Andrijashenko will dance the pas de deux from Roland Petit’s Proust.

Men in Motion is accompanied by a live orchestra, the Paradisal Players, conducted by Samuel Burstin.
