VaganovaToday has been following the rehearsal process the last few weeks at the Bolshoi with Forsythe representatives Noah Gelber and Kathryn Bennetts, who have been setting Artefacte Suite on the Bolshoi. A full review will appear in Dance Europe magazine in the December/January issue. But the two-ballet programme, which also includes a new version of Petrushka by choreographer Edward Klug is a purely modern addition to the Moscow troupe’s repertoire that is challenging in terms of the speed and coordination required in these newer, non-classical forms of movement.
VaganovaToday wishes the casts all the best in the upcoming premiere on 20 November 2018. Merde!
