Reckonings: bold new voices in dance

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the current theatre, Sadler’s Wells commissions three works from a new generation of UK-based dance-makers.

Julie Cunningham, whose work is concerned with gender identity, has recently launched their own company after dancing with Merce Cunningham and Michael Clark’s companies. Alesandra Seutin fuses urban dance languages with African styles to explore contemporary issues. While Botis Seva, from collective Far From the Norm, uses foundations of hip hop to create his own physical dance language.

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