The Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite is one of the finest dance-makers on the world stage. Her works address the human condition with fearlessness and compassion, and find light in the darkest night of the soul. Unsurprisingly, Pite is one of the dance world’s most sought-after artists, so it is no small triumph that the Royal Ballet has commissioned a new work from her. Entitled Flight Pattern, the work deals with the plight of refugees and displaced communities. It’s an important piece, and Thursday’s first night was lent added significance by the astonishing and dismaying fact that Pite is the first woman to choreograph for Covent Garden’s main stage this century.
