In the Spirit of Diaghilev

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Ballets Russes, Sadler's Wells commissioned four of today's leading choreographers to create one work each honouring the legacy of Sergei Diaghilev.

Featuring Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Faun, Russell Maliphant's Afterlight (Part One), Wayne McGregor's Dyad 1909 and the controversial Eternal Damnation to Sancho and Sanchez by Javier De Frutos. Specially filmed interview content offer viewers the unique opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at the works in rehearsal.
