The language and codes of classical ballet are deeply inscribed in the choreographic DNA of the choreographer and former ballet dancer Adam Linder. After showing his work extensively in theatres and exhibitions internationally, including Sadler's Wells in London and MOMA in New York amongst others, he now returns to his formative experiences in the performing arts - the ballet. In LOYALTY, Linder transposes the vocabulary of ballet into the 21st century by pursuing fresh approaches to the form’s technique and cultural codes. Working together with five world-class dancers, Linder creates a hybridized classical physicality that manifests a contemporary sense for composition and criticality. Performed in three acts set to the music of the British Avant-garde band Coil, this new ballet weaves virtuosity, theatricality and abstraction to meditate on the power dynamics inscribed in the genre of classical ballet.
