Scottish Ballet Autumn Season 2012

Scottish Ballet Autumn Season 2012

Empire Theatre

Run For It - Martin Lawrance
Workwithinwork - William Forsythe
Five Tangos - Hans van Manen

Scottish Ballet presents an extraordinary triple bill tracing a line through dance from the highly physical to the seductively graceful.

Fresh from its world premiere as part of the Cultural Olympiad this summer, Martin Lawrance's Run For It is a high energy work inspired by the power of Olympic athletes.

Classical discipline meets playfulness in William Forsythe's Workwithinwork, a study of the possibilities of motion. The dancers create a breathtaking display of fascinating angles and lines, leaving traces of their movements as they go.

Drawing the evening to a fiery close is Hans van Manen's 5 Tangos. Performed by Scottish Ballet for the first time, this sizzling work combines classical ballet with the passion and dramatic flourishes of the tango.
