Ballet Black at The Linbury
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.
Depouillement choreographed by Will Tuckett followed, music composed by Ravel, Sonata for violin & cello: Allegro, Tres vif, Lent and Depouillement.
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.
A great evening of strong choreography and beautiful dance. The drawings were made during the performance in the dark.
