Having completed two sold out UK tours, National Youth Dance Company returns to Sadler's Wells to premiere a new work created by the 2014-15 Guest Artistic Director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Cherkaoui is one of the most prolific choreographers working today; a Sadler's Wells Associate Artist, he has created more than 20 works. For this new commission Cherkaoui reimagines outstanding moments from his repertoire.

Frame[d] revists moments from Babel(words) co-choreographed by Damien Jalet, Puz/zle, Loin and TeZukA, incorporating new ideas and movement material from the National Youth Dance Company's young dancers. Cherkaoui's unique choreographic process, combined with the power of this vibrant company drawn from across England, illustrates the influence and creativity that emerging dance artists can bring to a professional dance collaboration. The work is created in partnership with Eastman.
