From 1979 to 2021 – in one evening

The choreographer Hlín Hjálmarsdóttir created Riptide especially for the Royal Ballet. Set in a parallel universe, and full of ritual and folkloristic elements, it is a story of exposure and vulnerability – an ancient, timeless, always relevant theme. The visual concept is by the designer and artist Martin Bergström.

Trisha Brown is one of the founders of contemporary ballet as we know it today. She began her ground-breaking career in 1970s New York by choreographing ordinary every-day movements. In Glacial Decoy, from 1979, the dancers flow back and forth in front of a backdrop made up of photographs by Robert Rauschenberg. The constant stream of movements and images overpower our senses until we no longer know how many dancers there are, or indeed why it should matter.

With a raw blend of traditional Jewish folk songs, mambo and techno, Ohad Naharin – aka Mr Gaga – and the Royal Swedish Ballet offer a memorable finale to the evening’s performance. Naharin has a global following of many hundred dancers worldwide – Minus 16 is bursting with energy, sway and release.
