Sadler's Wells is delighted to present a mixed programme devised and performed by internationally acclaimed dancer and Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Sylvie Guillem.

Widely recognised as one of the world's greatest dancers, Sylvie Guillem stars in an evening of work by three of today's most important choreographers; Mats Ek, William Forsythe and Ji?í Kylián.

This Sadler's Wells/Sylvie Guillem production features iconic dancer-maker William Forsythe's duet Rearray for Guillem and a male dancer.

Acclaimed Swedish choreographer Mats Ek's new solo, Bye, for Guillem, set to Beethoven's last piano sonata, has been heralded as a "masterpiece" by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Completing the evening is a duet from Kylián's work 27'52" performed by dancers handpicked by the choreographer.

Following the highly acclaimed Sadler's Wells collaborations, PUSH and Eonnagata, this evening is an exciting chance to see the ballerina widely recognised as 'the greatest of her generation'.
