About Eifman Ballet
Eifman Ballet returns to the Coliseum this December with the UK premiere of Artistic Director Boris Eifman’s awe-inspiring ballet Up & Down featuring the invigorating music of George Gershwin, Franz Schubert and Alban Berg. This special visit will also be a celebration of the internationally renowned Company's 40th anniversary.
Based on the 1934 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel Tender Is the Night, Up & Down follows the rise and fall of a promising young psychoanalyst and one of his patients – while presenting the bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears and fragments of patients' minds. The characters' own ups and downs are masterfully recreated by Boris Eifman and his dancers.
Set in the Jazz Age, the piece evokes the unstoppable feast of life and the era of freedom, sensuality and hedonism.
