Men in Motion

Author(s): Ivan Putrov

Ten years after its original sold-out season, Ivan Putrov has assembled an international cast of award-winning dancers in a new celebratory production of Men in Motion.

Royal Ballet stars Matthew Ball, Edward Watson and Vadim Muntagirov join Ivan along with Leo Dixon, Joseph Sissens, Luca Acri, Matteo Miccini (Stuttgart Ballet), José Alves (Ballet Black), Dmitry Zagrebin (Royal Swedish Ballet) and others in a programme ranging from Le Spectre de la rose to Volver, Volver, Äffi, a new work by Arthur Pita and creations by Lifar and Nijinska.

The programme explores how the role of male dancers has changed since the romantic era when men were often in the shadow of the ballerinas, playing the support act, through the emergence of icons from Nijinsky and Lifar, to Nureyev, Dowell and Baryshnikov to those present day stars who join Ivan live on stage at the London Coliseum.
