Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev have enthralled audiences around the world, capturing their admiration and imaginations as few dancers have in many years, whether performing together or as soloists. We would like to welcome the return of dance superstars Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev for a limited engagement of four performances in a spectacular programme titled Solo For Two.
The evening opens with extracts from Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Mea Culpa to music by Heinrich Schutz, accompanied by l'Ensemble Akademia from France amd conducted by Francoise Lasserre, followed by Passo by Ohad Naharin, Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company, danced to the British electronic music duo Autechre and English traditional folk music. The evening concludes with Facada by Arthur Pita, adapted specially for Natalia and Ivan from his original piece God's Garden. Original music by Frank Moon, Phil King and Portuguese traditional fado will be played live by Frank Moon.
