Hussein Chalayan’s Gravity Fatigue is available to watch on the Sadler's Wells Facebook page from Friday 29 May - at 7.30pm BST. It will be made available to view for seven days on Facebook and YouTube.

Hussein Chalayan is an internationally renowned fashion designer and visual artist whose work is known for innovative design, bold use of technology and elegant minimalism.

Chalayan’s first theatrical work Gravity Fatigue, received its world premiere at Sadler’s Wells in October 2015. Gravity Fatigue combined the visual creativity of his artistic concepts with contemporary dance, realised in partnership with award-winning choreographer Damien Jalet (Vessel, Babel (words)), Yeast Culture's Nick Hillel, sound illustrators Mode-F and lighting designer Natasha Chivers, the production takes its inspiration from themes of identity and displacement, and the disconnection experienced in public spaces at moments of transition.

"He is among the most respected creators of our time"
