TAO Dance Theatre: 6 plus 7

Master of minimalist movement Tao Ye founded TAO in 2008. Now famous for their stripped-down forms, the company brings two pieces from its Numerical Series, both featuring music from Tao’s regular collaborator, the avant-garde composer Xiao He.

In 4, a quartet move together in perfectly coordinated formation, without ever touching, as if drawn by a magnetic wave.

Tao’s latest work, 9, signifies a departure from the previous seven works in the series. A significant number in Chinese culture, representing a cycle of hardship and renewal, nine dancers hide connections within chaos.

Yang Liping - Rite of Spring

Yang Liping - Rite of Spring

Choreographer Yang Liping is known as the “Peacock Princess” in her native China.

This affectionate nickname stems from her most famous dance work, Spirit of the Peacock, inspired by the traditional peacock folk dancing of her youth. In 2016, she brought her beautiful visions to Sadler’s Wells with Under Siege. For her new work, she reunites with Oscar-winning designer Tim Yip, to create a unique take on Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring – utilising the iconic score alongside original compositions inspired by traditional Tibetan music.

Returning to her roots for this piece, Yang’s sacrificial Chosen One takes the form of a peacock.

La Fiesta - Israel Galvan

La Fiesta - Israel Galvan

Celebrated flamenco superstar, Israel Galván, returns to flaunt his signature quick-fire footwork in the most flamenco of celebrations.

Packed with energy and a sense of total liberty, Galván’s flair for the avant-garde brings the electric moments of the “fin de fiesta” to life - the time of freedom and improvisation following a flamenco show.

Traditionally a time for letting go, for invention and fierce creativity, La Fiesta unites a world-class company of dancers with musicians from inside the flamenco world and out, as Galván invites you to experience flamenco as not just an art form, but an intrinsic way of life.
