Summers in London have never been hotter. Ditto for its dance scene. This week for instance, celebrated artists like Carlos Acosta and Wendy Whelan are in town exploring cross collaborations outside the classical dance genre. One of the most awaited events of this kind is Solo for Two, an evening built around the superstar duo Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev, who will be showcasing new pieces by contemporary choreographers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Ohad Naharin and Arthur Pita.

The project debuts in LA this week, and ahead of its run of four shows at the Coliseum, we have some pictures of the pair rehearsing with Arthur Pita, taken by Doug Gifford:

Solo for Two is on at the London Coliseum from 6 to 9 August, 2014. For more information and booking, visit the ENO Website.

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).
