Our lovely new collaborator Alice Pennefather was at the general rehearsal of the Royal Ballet’s new triple bill. Dark and moody, the program combines a revival of Christopher Wheeldon’s neoclassical landmark Polyphonia, with two new pieces: Liam Scarlett’s murder mystery ballet, Sweet Violets, and Wayne McGregor‘s all singing, all dancing Carbon Life.
