Ballo Arthur Pita Ten Sorry Tales

Prices from: £9.00
A human butterfly emerges from a wicker coffin: with a look of joy on his face, a pale-skinned man wearing a loose striped nightshirt and nightcap opens his arms to unfold large wings of red and orange silk. Other butterflies flutter around him.

Ten Sorry Tales presents a collection of modern-day fables. From the child who sleeps for fifteen years, to the sinister sisters who prey on trespassers and the boy who brings butterflies back to life – Mick Jackson’s tales are by turns moving and gruesome, funny and dark. Beautifully eccentric and infused with gothic charm, Ten Sorry Tales will steal you away on a journey of curiosity.

Arthur Pita is celebrated for his surreal take on story-telling – combining dance, theatre, live music and song. In this new co-commission by Sadler’s Wells and DanceEast, Ten Sorry Tales follows the success of Pita’s critically-acclaimed Metamorphosis (Linbury Theatre), The Little Match Girl (DanceEast, Sadler’s Wells), The World’s Greatest Show (DanceEast, Royal Opera House) and Stepmother/Stepfather (DanceEast, The Place).

The Snowman
In a snowy landscape with tall pine trees leaning in from the sides, winter figures dance in pairs – in the centre a tall snowman wraps fluffy arms around the shoulders of a young girl in white tulle as she points a foot in a ballet slipper. Around them, other pairs are in the same pose – including snowmen, penguins, and Father Christmas.
