In The Spirit Of Diaghilev

Sadler’s Wells presents four pieces that pay tribute to Sergei Pavlovich Diaghilev, to mark the centenary of Diaghilev’s founding Les Ballets Russes. This legendary ensemble of dancers, composers, designers and artists all came together in the spirit of his famous challenge – “Surprise me!”. His outlook revolutionised the modern balletic canon and his legacy resonates across all art forms. In The Spirit of Diaghilev is an innovative rediscovery via works presented by Wayne McGregor, Russel Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Javier de Frutos. All the works were created for the occasion, with the Les Ballets Russes period in mind, and with the collaborative spirit Diaghilev encouraged.
