Time is infinite
A lifetime is finite
We are all here to catch a glimpse

Experience an emotionally charged rollercoaster of extraordinary dance set to a spine-tingling score in this powerful triple bill.

Relive speaks to our yearning for human connection. Using storytelling to revisit memories, this poignant work highlights what matters most in life: the people we share it with. Created with and performed by Sadler’s Wells’ Company of Elders, this new live work builds upon material that was worked on remotely during lockdown in early 2021, which was originally made into a short dance film and has now been transformed for the stage.

Whiskers 2 is a brand-new sequel to Drennan’s award-winning solo Whiskers (2012) – a study of what it means to be a woman. Returning to this work a decade later Drennan embarks on a dynamic exploration of her own primal power and how it transforms through time. Expect raw, physical storytelling conjured from the guts and bones of the protagonist.

Inspired by a survival story, Infinite Glimpse plays with Drennan’s distorted perceptions of time following her husband’s brain surgery. Lose yourself while exploring the challenge of finding beauty in darkness, courage through adversity, and a connection with others along the way.

Infinite Glimpse is commissioned by DanceEast and Relive is commissioned by Sadler’s Wells.

Image description: A line of wooden sandtimers stretches back from the camera, dividing a pale, undefined space into two. On the left, a woman in a loose blue sleeveless dress arches back towards the central line, her arms lifted. On the right, a man in grey trousers and pale blue shirt also arches towards the centre, one leg lifted straight up to the side.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Infinite Glimpse is Commissioned by DanceEast. Original Music-composed by Jamie Masters and Andy Sherriff, co-produced by Adelphoi Music. Supported by Studio Wayne McGregor through the FreeSpace Programme. Relive is Commissioned by Sadler’s Wells.

L-E-V - Chapter 3: The Brutal Journey of the Heart
Nine dancers wear full body suits matching their various skin tones, giving the impression that they’re naked, and their bodies entirely covered in delicate black tattoos of foliage and landscapes. They snuggle together in a tight line facing right, hip to hip. The dancer at the front has a red heart shape on his chest and leans back, lips pursed, as if about to kiss the dancer behind him.

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.
