Thomas Adés-on Square Gardens
A great week for Sadler’s Wells’ Producing and Touring in New York continued with a revival of Thomas Adés’ ‘Concentric Paths – Movement in Music’ over three performances also at New York City Center as part of the White Light Festival.
The quadruple bill consisted of Wayne McGregor’s ‘Outlier’, Karol Armitage’s ‘Life Story’, Alexander Whitley’s ‘The Grit in the Oyster’, before ending with Crystal Pite’s ‘Polaris’ danced by over sixty dancers. As you can imagine the result was an epic mix of creative choreography and mesmerising movement accompanied by an intensely transformative score executed by a full orchestra lead by Adés.
Pictured above is Crystal Pite giving notes to a small selection of the dancers in ‘Polaris’ on the stage, while the orchestra and composer Adés work below.
