Israel Galván

Long-limbed and charismatic, Israel Galván is a brilliantly unpredictable flamenco star. His new show Lo real tells the story of the persecuted Roma and Sinti peoples in fascist Spain.

19 to 21 August, Festival Theatre, Edinburgh

Sylvie Guillem

Life in Progress is Guillem’s farewell show, your last chance to catch the most influential ballerina of her generation before she retires. The new choreography by Akram Khan and Russell Maliphant lacks depth, but Guillem is on stellar form.

20 to 22 August, Edinburgh Playhouse

Ballett Zürich

The festival has neglected ballet recently, so this year’s programme redresses the balance. Kairos, by British choreographer Wayne McGregor, is set to Max Richter’s reworking of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, with designs by Idris Khan. Sonett, by Ballett Zürich director Christian Spuck, draws on Shakespeare, music and dance.

27 to 29 August, Edinburgh Playhouse

Correction

Glued to the floor, the dancers of Czech company VerTeDance literally can’t move their feet – but have to find other ways of dancing with each other. With live music by Clarinet Factory.

11 to 19 August, ZOO Southside

Special Edition 2015

New works created and performed by dancers from Scottish Ballet, following on from last year’s sell-out season. The choreographers include Eve Mutso, Jamiel Laurence and Constant Vigier.

7 to 23 August, Dance Base

Ballett am Rhein

Director Martin Schläpfer’s Seven stages Mahler’s monumental 7th symphony, played by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. 20-22 August, Edinburgh Playhouse
