A dance performance featuring Spanish dancer-choreographer Blanca Li & Maria Alexandrova, principal dancer of Russia's Bolshoi Ballet. The evening is a cross-cultural celebration of femininity in all of its complexities - from sinner to saint; nurturing mother to femme fatale - and incorporates legend, mythology, classical ballet and contemporary dance. The performance also features original couture costumes by four of the world's foremost fashion designers: Jean-Paul Gaultier, Azzedine Alaïa, Stella McCartney and Sophie Theallet. The final result is a stunning tableau of dance, with choreography that brings out the best of both dancers. The combination of Alexandrova’s classical ballet with Li’s modern dance creates a synergy that is somehow greater than the sum of its parts NY Observer.

“It has been a triumph. (...) The pinnacle of the show is reached when Blanca gives a solo beautifully inspired by Loïe Fuller’s art and the toreador’s gestures, with an immense red dress she flies all around her.”
“Must-see… Blanca Li is one of the great choreographers of our time… The final result is a stunning tableau of dance, with choreography that brings out the best of both dancers.”
