REVIEW: Kings 2 Ends – Scottish Ballet 30th September 2011

Earlier this year I went to see Scottish Opera, this time its the turn of their sister company Scottish Ballet. For the autumn season they have a double programme, Firstly – a new work by Jorma Elo – Kings 2 Ends, with music from Steve Reich and Mozart.

As with most modern ballet works there really isn’t anything particularly new. What saved this from the usual artificial posing and awkward, angular movements was a lyricism and flow to the choreography. Its relatively short length also meant that it lasted just long enough to show off the physicality of the dancers and keep the interest. It was enough but thankfully there was no more.
