Sadler's Wells

Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R


Exploring the highs and lows of football and life itself, Home Turf is a compelling collaboration between West Ham United Foundation, Sadler's Wells and a team of over 100 professional and non-professional dancers, including West Ham United Foundation participants, Company of Elders and alumni of the National Youth Dance Company.

A team of international choreographers including Pascal Merighi (guest artist, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch), Michela Meazza (guest artist, New Adventures), Lee Griffiths (The Company), Joseph Toonga (Just Us Dance Theatre), artists from Studio Wayne McGregor and composer Murray Gold (Doctor Who and balletLORENT's Show White) have worked collaboratively to create a thought provoking piece of dance theatre, uniquely reflective of its diverse cast.

"It is this idea of celebrating distinct identities and of combining them in a dance communion of different skills, ages and abilities that is an absolute winner"
THE SPECTATOR on Compass 2012
