In brief

Pre-recorded music

New choreographic signatures, new debuts: the European premiere of Reveal, created for Houston Ballet, showcases the style of Garrett Smith, an eclectic dancer and choreographer with a large international following. Of his three “meditative” ballets, Reveal focuses on duality in its many forms, showing the hidden parts of both sides of the coin. Explosive energy, irony and experimentation on movement: this is Skew-Whiff, a special combination of contemporary choreography and classical music, an iconic work by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, a highly original choreographic duo active since 1989, in residence at the Nederlands Dans Theater from 2002 to 2020 with over sixty creations. A graduate of La Scala and a former dancer at the Paris Opéra, with a choreographic career in eminent companies, Simone Valastro, after reprising his duet Árbakkinn, will now make the most of the Company’s potential, the strength of the group, and the personality of the soloists in the world premiere of his new creation, Memento.
