Northern Ballet’s next mixed programme will feature a new work by Kenneth Tindall, The Architect. The programme, which opens at the Stanley and Audrey Burton Theatre in Leeds on June 18 to 21, will also include Hans van Manen’s Concertante and a work by Lar Lubovitch.
Tindall, a dancer with Northern Ballet, has already created two works for the company, his award-winning Project #1 and Luminous Junc-ture (pictured), which will have its London premiere at the Linbury Studio Theatre this May.
Inspired by the story of Adam and Eve, The Architect will have sets and costumes by Christopher Giles, who collaborated on Northern Ballet’s Cleopatra and Hamlet, with lighting by Alastair West. Tindall said: I wanted to explore the figure of Adam as one of the many prototypes for mankind and to see, with the introduction of Eve, how their story will unfold.”
Tickets for the Leeds performances are now on sale. The Architect will have its London premiere next year, as part of Northern Ballet’s 2015 season at the Linbury Studio Theatre.
