Following on from his innovative digital work Pattern Recognition, Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate Alexander Whitley takes on the breathtaking scale of space for his company’s main stage debut.

Working in partnership with the scientists from STFC RAL Space at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, 8 Minutes draws inspiration from the images and data of solar science research to explore the spectacular forces at work in the universe and illuminate our relationship with the star that gives us life.

With a specially created score by the electroacoustic music innovator Daniel Wohl and an installation of high-definition imagery from visual artist Tal Rosner, 8 Minutes creates a striking, immersive environment of dance, music and film.
