He possesses all the qualities the United Kingdom would have needed in recent times: foresight, a clear vision, and the kind of wit that adds a postmodern facet to British humour. The duets Jonathan Burrows has performed and danced together with Matteo Fargion are among the gems of contemporary European choreography: including "Both Sitting Duet", "Speaking Dance" and "The Cow Piece", all of which were celebrated at ImPulsTanz. Now, Burrows takes his first solo work on tour. In preparation, he consulted "A Choreographer’s Handbook" which he wrote himself, recovered the choreography of a lost performance
and has rewritten that dance. Expect a masterpiece.
