Limitless
Ballet evening in two acts

Limitless. Four classical ballets that push the boundaries of achievability. That demand superhuman performance and virtuosic technical skill from the dancers. George Balanchine’s choreographies Theme and Variations and Sylvia Pas de Deux feature the graceful elegance of classical ballet. William Forsythe’s piece The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude was intended as a true homage to the technique of classical technique. Harald Lander’s one-act Études, on the other hand, is literally about technique and how it is practised and mastered. A programme that shows what the human body is capable of is practically limitless.
