Choreographer: Sol León & Paul Lightfoot

“During the creative process we observe in our work how ideas develop, then shift and alter from what we might have envisaged originally. We love this journey within our choreography, and to discover the freedom of watching what it often transforms into. Therefore, it becomes increasingly difficult, in fact near impossible, to say something about a new ballet which hasn’t been born yet. Often in the creative process, what you thought was the truth turns out to be the contrary. We have chosen though to call this work 'Sisters', drawing inspiration from the metaphor of connections and unconditional love between each other. Despite diverse paths and life stories since childhood, the bonds of a sibling still bind us together.”
– Sol León & Paul Lightfoot
