Foteini Christofilopoulou photographs Sadler’s Wells Sampled - featuring Uchenna Dance, Mavin Khoo, Semperoper Ballett, Rambert2, Patricia Guerrero and BirdGang.
★★★✰✰ Semperoper's dancers distort the classical ballet line more than the Paris Opera Ballet's (or ENB's) and don't bother much with fifth positions or precise épaulement for Forsythe's endless tendus. They seem contemporary dancers rather than étoiles being outrageous.
