Longevity in Dance: Elixir on Digital Stage
Sadler’s Wells Digital Stage presents Longevity in Dance, an eclectic mix of bold, playful and poignant films that challenge perceptions of dance and age.
The programme features commissions by internationally acclaimed artists, Charlotta Öfverholm, Nahid Siddiqui, José Losada Santiago and showcases new films by award-winning choreographer and director Eleesha Drennan, Sadler’s Wells Company of Elders and a fly on the wall documentary about iconic dancers Malou Airaudo and Germaine Acogny.
