Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Ek / Forsythe / Quagebeur

Company: English National Ballet

Renowned Swedish choreographer Mats Ek creates his first work for English National Ballet, performed alongside Blake Works I, a soulful piece by William Forsythe set to seven songs from James Blake’s album The Colour in Anything.

Take Five Blues by Associate Choreographer Stina Quagebeur premieèred last year and will be expanded for 2022. Under moody lights, dancers let loose to a jazz-inflected soundtrack, flaunting their talent and spurring each other on. As the recording of Nigel Kennedy’s arrangements of classical and jazz standards reaches its peak, so do their dancing feats.
