Three ground-breaking choreographers each create strikingly distinctive dance works to the same piece of music, Beethoven's Grande Fugue op. 133. Trois Grandes Fugues marks the welcome return to London of Lyon Opera Ballet who last performed at Sadler's Wells more than a decade ago. 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. Three visionaries give three dramatically different interpretations giving a fascinating insight into the relationship between music and choreography. Lyon Opera Ballet has been under the leadership of Artistic Director Yorgos Loukos since 1991 and is one of the world's foremost contemporary dance companies. Loukos built the company's bold and vast repertoire by including work from both emerging and established international choreographers.
