SIDI LARBI CHERKAOUI
Classical ballerina Natalia Osipova is a star in the dance world with a ballet pedigree that includes The Bolshoi, American Ballet Theatre and The Royal Ballet. Her dancing is an exquisite force of nature, celebrated for brilliant technique, vivid characterisation and electrifying energy. For this brand-new work, Natalia Osipova ventures into a different world to develop new artistic expressions.
The programme is the first ever to be commissioned by her. It features new work inspired by her unique abilities, by three contemporary choreographers: Artistic Director of the Royal Ballet Flanders Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Babel), the innovative Russell Maliphant and the imaginative and much sought-after Arthur Pita.
Osipova will be joined by Sergei Polunin, himself a superstar of the ballet world, and, for Cherkaoui’s work, Jason Kittelberger and James O’Hara.
