Sylvie Guillem was born in France and has spent the last 35 years breaking tremendous ground in the world of ballet and dance. In 1983, she received her first solo role, as Queen of the Druids in "Don Quixote," which was staged by Rudolf Nureyev. The next year she became the youngest etoile in Paris Opera Ballet history. From there, her career only continued to climb. In 1988, she left Paris to move to London to forge her career as an independent artist. She quickly became a dancer in-demand and created the wildly popular and award-winning dance television show "Evidentia." After, she staged and re-staged many dances moving into the 2000s, winning the Nijinsky Prize in 2002.
The show is produced by Sadler's Wells London in conjunction with Les Nuits de Fourviere and Sylvie Guillem. Sadler's Wells is where Sylvie Guillem has made her home in recent years, often collaborating with various artists at the company.
