Trois Grandes Fugues is a chance to see three personal and sophisticated responses to Beethoven’s impassioned score, and marks a welcome return to the world-class dancers of Lyon Opera Ballet back to Sadler’s Wells after more than a decade, as part of the London-wide dance festival, Dance Umbrella.
Three acclaimed choreographers create three inimitable dance works to the same piece of music, Beethoven’s Grande Fugue op. 133. Lucinda Childs' interpretation exemplifies her meticulous precision and cool, complex classicism. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker responds with an uninhibited, masculine and non-classical vocabulary, whilst Maguy Marin creates an exhilarating whirlwind where life is reduced to a race against death.
