To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the current theatre, Sadler’s Wells presents three commissions by a new generation of UK based dance-makers: Julie Cunningham, Alesandra Seutin and Botis Seva.

Julie Cunningham recently launched her own company after 15 years of dancing with the renowned Merce Cunningham Dance Company and Michael Clark Company. Her work is concerned with gender identity, using text to enrich the movement.

Alesandra Seutin founded Vocab Dance Company in 2007 and has been making work, performing and teaching internationally for over a decade. Alesandra is a protégé of African Contemporary Dance figure Germaine Acogny. She fuses contemporary and urban dance languages with African styles to explore contemporary issues. Her work and ideology pushes to the forefront the black performing body, art and aesthetic.

Botis Seva and his collective Far From the Norm have previously performed at Sadler’s Wells with Breakin’ Convention, and curated a Wild Card. Using the foundations of hip hop, Seva has created a physical dance language of his own which is both immediate and subversive, and has earned a rapidly growing reputation.

This evening promises to be an exciting celebration of what theatres can do best: offer a springboard for distinctive voices who help us see the world in a different light.
