Made at Sadler’s Wells is a programme of short masterpieces produced by international dance house Sadler’s Wells in London, and created by some of its world-class Associate Artists.
This is the ideal opportunity to see three virtuoso dance performances by some of the world’s most cutting edge choreographers - Russell Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Wayne McGregor, all in one night.
Russell Maliphant’s Afterlight (Part One) was inspired by Vaslav Nijinsky’s drawings and hailed as a defining part of Maliphant’s career when it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 2009. Consisting of a stunning solo performance with lighting and animated projection by Michael Hulls and set to the beautiful score of Eric Satie’s Gnossiennes, it went on to win two National Dance Awards and received an Olivier Award nomination.
Celebrated contemporary choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui presents his delightful duet, Faun, a reinvention of Nijinsky’s famous ballet L’après-midi d’un faune which stunned audiences and critics alike when it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 2009 as part of their celebration of the Ballets Russes. Set to the original score by Claude Debussy, with additional music by acclaimed composer Nitin Sawhney.
UNDANCE is a unique collaboration between acclaimed contemporary composer Mark- Anthony Turnage, choreographer Wayne McGregor and Turner Prize-winning visual artist Mark Wallinger. Danced by the ten incredible performers of Wayne McGregor and Random Dance, UNDANCE was an instant hit when it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 2011.
