To Fetch a Pail of Water? Depouillement (2009). Second Coming

Kit Holder choreographed the first dance of the evening, To Fetch a Pail of Water? Based on the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill, Holder has given it an alternative story line, presenting his own version of why they went uphill and it was far from innocent.

I was glad I was told in the interval to read the programme blurb about the final dance of the evening, Second Coming choreographed by Mark Bruce. Without it I would have felt quite lost.

Young Men. BalletBoyz, at Sadler’s Wells

Choreographer Ivan Perez creates a dance to commemorate the First World War with commissioned orchestral music by Keaton Henson played live and visible through the back curtain. A cast of 11 men and 2 women, the choreography is fast and sometimes frantic, rarely slowing. (Only criticism? Gloomy lighting, making drawing a struggle.)
