Dancer: Sylvie Guillem

All four dancers began their careers in the classical ballet, which all four also managed to put in a contemporary context. 

Sylvie broke the boundaries of classical dance to blaze new trails in the contemporary idiom. 

In this production, she takes on the modernist challenges of a perceptive post-classicist, a neo-classicist with a love for the cinema, and a choreographer who uses movement to explore the soul.
