Summers in London have never been hotter. Ditto forÂ itsÂ 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 awaitedÂ 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 piecesÂ 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 DougÂ Gifford:Solo for Two isÂ on at the London Coliseum from 6 to 9 August, 2014. For more information and booking, visit theÂ ENO Website.
