Survival is at the heart of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s new dance
piece with Les Ballets C de la B
By DONALD HUTERA for The South Bank Magazine
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is half-Moroccan, half-
Flemish, and dances like an elastic angel. Little
surprise, then, that several of those divine winged beings figure in the choreographer’s Foi (belief).
With this performance the Belgian company Les
Ballets C de la B – Alain Platel’s acclaimed and unorthodox production outfit, well-known for nurturing young innovators – makes a welcome return to the South Bank.
Cherkaoui is unquestionably the brightest star in
Platel’s constellation of artistic associates.
