Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion is a celebration of the male dancer that compresses 100 years of beguiling choreography for men into a concise 100 minutes. From L'Apres-midi d'un Faune by Vaslav Nijinsky to Russell Maliphant's duet Two x Two, Putrov selects an array of classic to contemporary choreography to showcase both the relevance and beauty of male dance and the talents of the best performers of the day.
Inspired and moved after viewing the show at the London Coliseum, Nick Knight asked featured dancer Daniel Proietto to appear on film. Here, Prioietto performs the piece Sinnerman, choreographed by Alan Lucien Øyen. The work was featured as part of Men in Motion, but originally produced by winter guests in collaboration with The Norwegian Opera and Ballet, and funded by the The Norwegian Arts Council. Knight's piece is a celebration of the majesty of the male dancer - a sublime example of the possibilities of the body and the impact of the moving image.
