Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet
- Sadler's Wells
Making their much anticipated UK premiere New York's Cedar Lake is one of the world's most exciting dance companies. Led by artistic director Benoit-Swan Pouffer, they combine powerful physicality with classical technique in works created by some of today?s most provocative dance makers. Hofesh Shechter's Violet Kid examines man's struggle for harmony within a complex and often horrifying universe. Performed by all 16 dancers,Shechter's original score features recorded audio text performed by the choreographer. Tuplet is a pulsating work for six dancers choreographed by Alexander Ekman posing the question, what is rhythm? Set to a score created in collaboration with the dancers own rhythmic impulses and using their bodies as percussion, the soundscape is integrated with electronic music composed by Mikael Karlsson. A former star of Sadler's Wells Debut initiative, Canadian choreographerCrystal Pite's Grace Engine concludes the bill, continuing her exploration of the familiar storylines that connect mankind.
