As part of its weekend of contemporary dance performance, BBC Four will broadcast The Most Incredible Thing, the new, full-length dance piece which premièred at Sadler's Wells in London earlier this year, featuring music by electronic pop legends the Pet Shop Boys and choreographed and directed by Javier de Frutos. The programme will go out at 8pm on July 1st on BBC Four.
The Most Incredible Thing sees modern dance set in a traditional three-act narrative and features former Royal Ballet star Ivan Putrov alongside principal dancers and Aaron Sillis.
Featuring design, lighting and film content by an impressive creative team, including Tony Award-winning designer Katrina Lindsay (Les Liaisons Dangereuses) and Bafta-winning film animator Tal Rosner, the programme also includes exclusive behind-the-scenes access and interviews with the Pet Shop Boys, Javier de Frutos and others involved in this ambitious new production.
