UK PREMIERE 

Led by artistic director Katrín Hall, Swedish contemporary dance company GöteborgsOperans Danskompani’s repertoire focuses on original works, specially commissioned from both renowned and emerging choreographers.

In Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Noetic, 19 black-clad dancers, elegantly dressed by fashion design duo Les Hommes, manipulate pliable carbon fibres, designed by Cherkaoui’s regular collaborator, the sculptor Antony Gormley.

This exploration of noetic (from the Greek “noesis” meaning intellect) philosophy features live music by Szymon Brzóska, performed on stage by singer Miriam Andersén and taiko drummer Shogo Yoshii. Cherkaoui’s Noetic examines humanity’s need to both control the world, and escape from its rules.
