Ivan Putrov Men in Motion at Sadler’s Wells

Former Royal Ballet Principal, Ivan Putrov, presents an evening of works exploring the beauty of the male form in motion. Joining him on stage will be Royal Ballet sensation Sergei Polunin, Critics’ Circle National Dance Award-winner Daniel Proietto, Bolshoi Ballet Principal Dmitry Gudanov and Mariinsky Ballet Principal, Igor Kolb.

Performed by a live orchestra conducted by Richard Bernas, the evening will include Fokine’s legendary Le Spectre de la Rose, a solo from Goleizovsky’s Narcisse danced by Polunin, and Ithaca, a new work with set design by Turner Prize-nominated artist Gary Hume.

Continuing the theme is Gluck’s beautiful Dance of the Blessed Spirits. Originally choreographed by Ashton on Anthony Dowell, it will be taught to Putrov by Dowell, marking its first appearance in the UK for over 30 years. Completing the line-up is Russell Maliphant’s AfterLight (Part One) and Nacho Duato’s Remanso, a trio that places the artistry of the male dancer firmly in the 21st century.
