Up & Down
UK Premiere at the London Coliseum, London, Great Britain
6th December 2016
Eifman Ballet return to the UK with the premiere of Artistic Director Boris Eifman’s ballet Up & Down. In this photo call, the company will be performing fully lit and costumed scenes from the production.
Taking place in the magnificent Jazz Age – the piece evokes the unstoppable feast of life; the era of freedom, sensuality, and hedonism. This special visit will also be a celebration of the internationally renowned Company’s 40th anniversary.
Based on the 1934 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel ‘Tender Is the Night’, Up & Down follows the rise and fall of a promising young psychoanalyst and one of his patients; presenting the bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears and fragments of patients’ minds. The characters’ own ups and downs masterfully recreated by Boris Eifman and his dancers.
