Wild Card invites a new generation of dance artists to curate special evenings and showcase their work.

Hagit Yakira is an Israeli choreographer based in London whose work is attracting growing acclaim for her distinctive physical and emotional intensity, emerging from her fascination with stories, psychological experiences and emotions. In this Wild Card, Hagit Yakira invites audiences to experience her take on storytelling for a night of dance and choreography, inspired by her interpretations of femininity and her own real life experiences.

"Eloquently crafted and beautifully performed"

Each night, there will be several live responses to Hagit’s new work Free Falling, by an eclectic group of guests artists and experts, through movement and words. Facilitated by dramaturg, writer and researcher Dr. Martin Hargreaves, guests include: Dr. Emma Dowling (researcher), Rosemary Lee (dance artist), Rachel Krische (dance artist), Dr. Efrosini Protopapa (dance artist and academic) and Alexandrina Hemsley (dance artist).
