Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion have been collaborators for 30 years, slowly building a body of work which straddles the line between dance, music, performance art and comedy.

At Sadler’s Wells, Burrows & Fargion will present their two most recent duets. Rewriting (2019) is an increasingly complex memorised choreography of cards, contrasted by a rambling love letter to the impossibility of choreographing, and accompanied by music played on a Casio keyboard. This is followed immediately by Science Fiction (2021), a loud, accumulative music performance for synthesisers and percussion, which will leave you wondering what might happen next.

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are co-produced by PACT Zollverein, Essen and Sadler’s Wells, London.

Pina Bausch / Germaine Acogny & Malou Airaudo - The Rite of Spring / common ground[s]
A company of two dozen black dancers, all facing to the right, heads turned towards us or back over their shoulders. They float just above the ground, bare feet pointing towards the soil, as if they’ve just jumped straight up. The women wear soft slip dresses of creamy silk, while the men have bare chests and black trousers.
