Wayne McGregor’s “Symbiont(s)” for the first time in Estonia
November 15 will see the premiere of Wayne McGregor’s ballet “Symbiont(s)” in Estonia. Originally created for The Royal Ballet in 2000, “Symbiont(s)” is a hybrid work of stylistic extremes. Centered around a series of enigmatic puzzles for seven dancers, each subverting and challenging the classical technique, this fascinating work is set in a blazing environment of light and shadow by renowned lighting designer Lucy Carter.
Wayne McGregor, the first contemporary choreographer to be the Resident Choreographer of the Royal Ballet, challenges the language of movement without allowing his zeal for experimentation to overshadow the individuality of his dancers. “Symbiont(s)” haunting beauty won the Time Out Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance.
“Symbiont(s)” will be a part of the new ballet evening together with Stravinsky’s “Petrushka”, staged by famous Estonian choreographer Mai Murdmaa.
