Completing the triple bill is Edwaard Liang’s The Infinite Ocean, which has a forceful and exciting score by Oliver Davis (played live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia) and a fantastic set that references Olafur Eliasson’s groundbreaking 2003 Tate Modern installation The Weather Project. Evoking the place between life and death, Liang’s lyrical choreography is suffused with a sense of longing and intimations of farewell. It’s memorable for a pair of duets performed by two outstanding couples — Sofiane Sylve and Tiit Helimets, Yuan Yuan Tan and Vitor Luiz — who savour the intimacy of Liang’s writing and raise it above the level of the merely generic.
