Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui choreographed Beyoncé Grammy performance
The artistic director of the Royal Ballet Flanders choreographed Beyoncé’s nine-minute performance at the weekend’s Grammy Awards
Cherkaoui worked with Beyoncé, who is about three months pregnant, on the choreography for her songs “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” from her album Lemonade. The performance garnered rave reviews, with USA Today writing: “Her visual presentation was in a completely different class from anything else at the Grammys so far this year, or most other years.”
Cherkaoui worked with Beyoncé for the first time last year on choreography for her performance at a benefit concert for the streaming website Tidal.
