Wild Card returns with more specially curated evenings from a new generation of dance makers, bringing fresh perspectives to the stage. For each Wild Card, an up-and-coming artist is given the opportunity to present their own work, alongside performances by artists they admire.

Tim Casson is a London-based performer and choreographer with an interest in collaboration, interactivity and technology. Best known for his innovative record-breaking dance project The Dance WE Made, Tim invites you to join him and his friends for a night of work created through unexpected and unique collaborations – between dancers, artists and perhaps even you!

The evening includes the London premiere of Casson's solo work Fiend; a magical reimagining of Nijinsky's iconic Afternoon of a Faun, created in collaboration with computer programmer Tom Butterworth, which sees the dancer multiplied and seeking a connection in his virtual world.

The evening also features Nina Kov’s intriguing Place Prize 2012 semi-final work, Copter, alongside Sonata in 3 Movements by up and coming Austrian choreographer Cornelia Voglmayr.

Tim Casson invites audiences to join performers for an evening to explore the wonderful things that can happen when people work together.
