After an unparalleled career that has spanned almost 35 years, Sylvie Guillem presents her final dance programme. A world famous dancer with an extensive career at the Paris Opera Ballet and as a Principal Guest Artist at The Royal Ballet and Tokyo Ballet, Guillem has played iconic roles including MacMillan’s Manon and Béjart’s Bolero. Guillem is a Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist since 2006.
In Life in Progress she will dance two new works including a solo, with live musicians on stage, choreographed by Akram Khan. The second will be a pas de deux with Italian dancer Emanuela Montanari from La Scala, choreographed by Russell Maliphant who collaborated with her on the award-winning PUSH. The programme will also include Mats Ek’s touching and poignant Bye (which has made especially for her) and William Forsythe’s Duo performed by Brigel Gjoka e Riley Watts.
