Cedar Lake


DATES: 11th Oct 12 - 13 Oct 12
TICKETS: £12.00 - £27.00




New York based company Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet makes its highly anticipated UK debut, presenting three UK premieres at Sadler’s Wells.

 Led by artistic director Benoit-Swan Pouffer, the company is known for its “impressive articulation and intensity” (New York Times) in works created by some of the world’s most highly regarded dance makers.

Its programme includes Hofesh Shechter’s Violet Kid, which examines man’s struggle for harmony within a complex and often horrifying universe. Performed by all 16 dancers, the piece is set to an original score by Shechter using recorded audio text performed by the choreographer. Alexander Ekman’s Tuplet is also featured. This work for six dancers is set to a score created in collaboration with the dancers’ own rhythmic impulses, using their bodies as percussion, alongside an electronic score composed by Mikael Karlsson.  Former star of Sadler’s Wells’ Debut initiative, Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite’s Grace Engine concludes the bill.

 

Sadler's Wells is the UK's leading dance house, uniquely dedicated to bringing the very best international and UK dance to London audiences. We are committed to producing, commissioning and presenting works of the highest standards, crossing the boundaries between different art forms.
