Variations Of Pointe


June 2016

Presented by JSLN Dance Company. 

Variations of Pointe is an exciting new triple bill with something for everyone encompassing all aspects of ballet: grace, elegance and entertainment. 

The first piece in the triple bill is Niewelt’s adaptation of Fokine’s Petrouchka from the time of the Imperial Russian Ballet with music by Stravinsky. The story, set inside a magical puppet workshop, is a dramatic tale of love and jealousy between a beautiful ballerina doll and her admirers.

In the second piece, JSLN translates into dance the antics of René Artois and his friends in a new version of ‘Allo ‘Allo which is guaranteed to have you rolling around in your seats with laughter. 

The third piece, Transitions of (I)dentity follows on from JSLN’s success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015. The tale of The Soul Searcher is brought to life through the beautifully pared down, elegant and pure movements of neo-classical ballet performed to the music of Vivaldi, and it promises to be a feast for the senses.
