Last night saw the fantastic performance of Sylvie Guillem at Sadler's Wells in London.
She was fabulous! All her movements were so precise and smooth.
"SYLVIE GUILLEM: We were in the studio here creating the William Forsythe work, Re-array. It was the last day of the rehearsal, the next day we were taking the plane, so we were following the news (the earthquake in Japan) on the internet, the airport TV and then in France. It’s why I called the show 6000 Miles Away - it's the distance between them and us.
