BYE (AJÃ–), has been heralded as a "masterpiece" by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. It is performed by Sylvie Guillem, "the most brilliant ballerina of her generation"(The Guardian, UK) and is choreographed and directed by acclaimed Swedish choreographer Mats Ek. BYE is a film interpretation of Mats Ek's solo piece BYE for and requested by Sylvie Guillem, presently on stage at Sadler's Wells, UK's leading dance house. Set to Beethoven's last piano sonata, Opus 111, in a recording by Ivo Pogorelich, the stage performance of BYE is described by Mats Ek as being "... about a woman who takes leave of a certain stage in her life. It is a conversation that she has with herself that leads to new experiences."
