American Ballet Theatre

My first time watching/drawing The American Ballet Theatre who were performing at Sadler’s Wells last week. Two programmes, I chose the first over the second to see Twyla Tharp‘s Known By Heart. The first dance of the evening, danced by three couples to Scarlatti, was Alexei Ratmansky‘s Seven Sonatas.

I loved Twyla Tharp’s  Known by Heart performed by Gillian Murphy and Blaine Hoven to Donald Knaack‘s Junk Music. Known by Heart. Twyla Tharp

Another entirely different duet, Duo Concertant, followed, choreographed by George Balanchine.

The final work, Everything Doesn’t Happen at Once choreographed by Benjamin Millepied had a 6 piece music ensemble on stage playing music by David Lang, performed by 24 dancers.
