News: Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Wednesday 6 April 2005

Adam Cooper’s version of the 18th century novel – and the 1980’s film – has just opened in Japan and comes to Sadler’s Wells this summer. “Liaisons represents an enormous leap forward in Cooper’s ambitions as a dance-maker, and he has worked hard to flesh out the theatricality of his staging with an abundance of full-out dancing. His choreography slips between baroque formality and overheated, even violent, physicality in which creepy seductiveness gives way to an almost grotesque display of excessive emotion.” Times, 29 Mar
