Trois Grandes Fugues

Trois Grandes Fugues

Three acclaimed choreographers each create inimitable dance works to the same piece of music, Beethoven's Grande Fugue op. 133. Lucinda Childs' interpretation exemplifies her meticulous precision and cool, complex classicism. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker responds with an uninhibited, masculine and non-classical vocabulary, whilst Maguy Marin creates an exhilarating whirlwind where life is reduced to a race against death. Trois Grandes Fugues marks a welcome return for the world class dancers of Lyon Opera Ballet who last performed at Sadler's Wells more than a decade ago.

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance - Bayadere -The Ninth Life

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance - Bayadere -The Ninth Life

Ground-breaking dance-maker Shobana Jeyasingh brings her radical imagination to Petipa’s legendary ballet La Bayadère. More than a retelling, it searches for the roots of the Bayadère herself and the allure she exerted in Europe over the centuries. The words of the celebrated French writer Théophile Gautier, who recorded his ambiguous impressions of Indian temple dancers in 1838, add to the rich mix of Gabriel Prokofiev’s specially commissioned score to form a unique and personal work.

Featuring a bold new design created by the award-winning contemporary theatre designer Tom Piper, following its premiere at the Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House in 2015.

Until Our Hearts Stop

Until Our Hearts Stop

Acclaimed American choreographer, Meg Stuart's work is constantly shifting, developing a language and set of rules for every piece. With Until Our Hearts Stop, Stuart drew inspiration from the people who create their own, fantastical, rules as they retreat from real life.

Six performers and three musicians find themselves in a place that is both a nightclub and an arena: a place of desire and illusion experiencing extreme intimacy at each other's hands in their high-octane refuge. To the sound of throbbing basses, piano and drums, they connect and explore each other, and draw the audience into their immersive world.
