UK PREMIERE 

Celebrated as one of the most original and ambitious talents working in contemporary dance today, Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's latest creation is inspired by the American philosopher Noam Chomsky, and features an all-male cast of dancers and musicians.

Returning to the stage as a performer, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui explores the production and manipulation of information in contemporary society.

Originally created for the 40th anniversary of Pina Bausch's Tanztheater Wuppertal, this expanded version of the piece features five dancers with very different styles – circus, Lindy hop, flamenco, hip hop and breakdance – with three musicians performing live.
