Flight Pattern

...Covent Garden Opera House

...'Flight Pattern isn’t long, but it cuts to the heart. To the opening chords of Górecki’s Third Symphony, we discover a rolling, swaying phalanx of grey-clad figures. Three columns of 12, nervously scenting the air. Skirmishes break out, frantic couplings occur. What drives the lines forward we don’t know; perhaps simply the instinct to keep moving. They are at once a wave of humanity, and the storm-blown waves of a sea that may claim their lives.' Luke Jennings, Guardian

...'T'he Royal Ballet celebrates the diversity and richness of contemporary ballet with a mixed programme that includes an established classic, a recent work and a world premiere: David Dawson’s first work for The Royal Ballet, an acclaimed ballet by Christopher Wheeldon and a new creation by Crystal Pite.'
