Sleight of Hand

In 2007, Paul Lightfoot and Sol León made the intense ballet Sleight of Hand. With this ballet the choreographer duo showed that they had taken a theatrical route. Sleight of Hand  is full of drama and mysticism, it is a game of light and dark. The stage image is exceptionally beautiful, with two towering dancers wearing black skirts, who seem to determine with gestures what should happen below. The other six dancers enchant with expressive dance and tender duets to Philip Glass’s second symphony.
