Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara returns to London this month with his retelling of Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot, the first time he has performed in the UK since 2011. Teshigawara took up the challenge of creating a choreographic work from Dostoyevsky’s novel in 2016, producing a pure dance work that is fluid and intricately sculpted. Performed by Teshigawara and Rihoko Sato, the work “revels in the writer’s universe of contrasts, on the border between incandescent and glacial, frenetic and introspective, tracing out a world of pared-down purity”. The production can be seen at The Print Room at the Coronet, Notting Hill, London, from March 20 to 30. To book tickets, telephone the Box Office on 020 3642 6606 or visit
