"Sorella - A Portrait"
November 24, 2017
It is seldom that a ballet dancer is celebrated by a ballet on her life in her own lifetime. Finnish/Danish ballerina Sorella Englund is among the selected few. After working with Sorella Englund, choreographer and director Pernille Garde got the inspiration to create a ballet on one of our most iconic dancer’s life. Garde has her background in the modern dance world, and her ballet uses many – and perhaps too many – standards from the modern scene, like random flashbacks and having four dancers, including a male dancer, portraying Sorella Englund.
