Two renowned dance makers, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui & Yabin Wang, come together to present this new work about the origins of things. The result is a show of mesmerising beauty.

Genesis 生长interweaves philosophical ideas about a person's place in society with clinical and almost dystopian imagery, set to the sounds of live music drawn from global roots.

Leading Chinese dance artist Wang, also known for her incredible dancing in the film House of Flying Daggers, makes her London stage debut in this evocative work she created with Cherkaoui. Cherkaoui's celebrated curiosity for other international dance forms has been behind acclaimed works including sutra (monks of the Shaolin Temple) and m¡longa (tango).
