A hip hop infused window through time across different generations.

What stories do you want to remember, pass on, or maybe forget?

The Exchange explores evolving perspectives, telling stories of our past, present and future selves through dance styles influenced by hip hop culture.

Made up of older adults aged 60+ from the local community, Sadler’s Wells Company of Elders comes together with the groundbreaking storytellers of ZooNation Youth Company.

Directed by ZooNation Youth Company’s Artistic Director Chaldon Williams, this promises to be an uplifting performance. Included in The Exchange is a documentary film of this collaboration by filmmaker Joe Priest, commissioned by Sadler’s Wells Digital Stage, and an invitation to join the dancers on stage in a post-performance jam!
