Fans of the world's most celebrated dancing partners will be glad to see their favorite duo together again as Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev re-unite for Solo for Two, onstage at the London Coliseum from 6 – 9 August 2014.
For their return performance, the couple will be dancing three exciting performances including two world premieres commissioned by the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and Ardani Artists.
Audiences of Solo for Two can look forward to diverse pieces like Passo by Ohad Naharin, artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company, danced to the British electronic music duo Autechre and English traditional folk music. There's also a new work by Arthur Pita called Facada, danced to music by Frank Moon, Phil King and traditional Portuguese fado. And an opening performance that has yet to be confirmed.
Natalia Osipova graduated from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy and joined the Bolshoi Ballet the same year, ultimately reaching the position of Principal Dancer.
Her vast repertoire includes principal roles in Leonide Massine's Les Presages, Twyla Tharp's In the Upper Room, Asaf Messerer's Class Concert as well as George Balanchine's Serenade and Symphony in C (3rd Movement).
She also originated featured roles in Yuri Possokhov's Cinderella and Ratmansky's Bolero, The Bolt, Jeu De Cartes, The Bright Stream, Middle Duet, Russian Seasons and The Flames of Paris.
Ivan Vasiliev studied at the Dnepropetrovsk Ballet School in Ukraine and later at the Belorussian State Choreographic College in Minsk. In 2006, he was invited to join the Bolshoi Ballet as a soloist, making his debut with the Company, at age 17, as Basilio. He was soon promoted to the rank of principal dancer.
In addition to Basilio and Ali, his repertory includes the title role in Spartacus, the Nutcracker-Prince in The Nutcracker, Colas in Sir Frederick Ashton’s La Fille Mal Gardee, soloist in Christopher Wheeldon’s Misericordes, Asaf Messerer’s Class Concert and Philippe in Alexei Ratmansky’s The Flames of Paris.
