Men in Motion - London Coliseum
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
INNOVATIVE show Men in Motion, the brainchild of former Royal Ballet Principal Ivan Putrov, returns for two nights only (January 30 and 31, 2014) at the London Coliseum with a new cast.
Following in the footsteps of the celebrated male dancers of the last century, Vaslav Nijinsky, Rudolf Nureyev and Vladimir Vasiliev, Men in Motion boasts a star studded cast featuring Ivan Putrov, Edward Watson and Vadim Muntagirov.
They will be joined by a cast of leading international names – Marian Walter, Daniel Proietto, Marijn Rademaker, Rainer Krenstetter, Elena Glurdjidze, Valentino Zucchetti and Yonah Acosta.
Men in Motion showcases and highlights the range, virtuosity and splendour of the male dancer.
The show, with beautifully choreographed ballets, pays homage and includes references to the famous and iconic works created for the male dancer. Highlights include Vaslav Nijinsky’s L’apres-midi d’un faune set to Debussy’s haunting score and Fokine’s Le Spectre de la Rose; Roland Petit’s Proust and Russell Maliphant’s duet Two x Two.
The show will also feature new exciting additions, including a creation by ground breaking Arthur Pita, creator of Metamorphosis.
