Take Five BluesMusic: Various
Choreography: Stina Quagebeur

Jazz-inspired joy of dance.

By Stina Quagebeur
A film by Shaun James Grant

ENB Associate Choreographer Stina Quagebeur’s Take Five Blues was inspired by Nigel Kennedy’s take on Bach’s Vivace and Desmond’s Take Five, and the way in which contemporary jazz and classical music are uniquely married together.

Film director Shaun James Grant creates a jazz-influenced dream-like atmosphere, where the eight dancers are in their own world, free to feed off each other’s energy and play with the unexpected melodies and rhythms in this high-spirited number that pushes past classical ballet’s rules and boundaries into new territories.

Dancers: Aitor Arrieta, Matthew Astley, Fernando Carratalá Coloma, Henry Dowden, Shiori Kase, Katja Khaniukova, Rentaro Nakaaki, Angela Wood
