He returns temporarily to his home country for a retrospective that retraces the 50th anniversary of his prolific career. The show comprises extracts from Romeo and Juliet, Le Presbytre, Le Sacre du Printemps and other pieces from Bjartss abundant and eclectic work. Always infused with contemporary music and a passion for cosmopolitan culture, this repertoire has made him a key innovator in the world of dance. As Bjart describes dance, its about minimum explanation, minimum anecdotes and maximum feeling. Tickets cost from 44.50 to 83.
