Love Games

Friday 26 June 2020, 7:30pm

New English Ballet Theatre presents Love Games: 5 inspired choreographies, 5 different stories, 5 different games...

Choreography by Wayne Eagling, Daniela Cardim, Ruth Brill, Morgann Runacre-Temple and Peter Leung.

In Wayne Eagling’s Jeux, a flirtatious game is transformed into a tribute to Vaslav Nijinsky, reflecting on the power and vulnerability of the artist.

Relationship games are afoot in Daniela Cardim’s Vertex, a dynamic response to Guarnieri’s music.

Ruth Brill’s Domino plays with patterns and pairings in a game of human dominoes.

Set to a modern arrangement of Schubert’s ‘Rosamunde Quartet’, Morgann Runacre-Temple’s Rosamunde plays with ideas of revealing and concealing.

Peter Leung’s All in passing explores the way relationships shift and morph as time passes.
