An intimate evening of dance featuring renowned choreographer Jules Cunningham, Spice Girl Melanie C and award-winning dancer Harry Alexander.
Internationally renowned dancer and choreographer Jules Cunningham (Julie Cunningham & Company) premieres their latest Sadler’s Wells commission in collaboration with and starring Spice Girl, Melanie C and award-winning dancer, Harry Alexander. Set in the round with some seating on stage, join us for this intimate evening of dance.
What do we hold in our bodies?
The fullness of our experience is alive and present in every moment.
We feel our power, all the way to the edges of ourselves,
The loneliness of living and never fully being understood,
And the chaos that lives within and around us.
The longing in our hearts,
The unexpected happenings at the edges of our lives,
Our memories and the inrush of the future,
The voices of those near us, and those far away.
How did we get here?
[Image description] Three figures are stood against a black background in a line wearing full length black leotards with white smoke-effect detailing. All three stand upright with their arms hanging by their sides. On the left is Jules Cunningham standing in profile. They have their hair clipped short on the sides and long on the top and back. In the centre is Melanie C, facing front on. Her hair is pulled back into a ponytail and her gaze is lowered. On the right is Harry Alexander, also stood in profile and facing Jules and noticeably taller than the others. His hair is sectioned into long locs and pulled up. He has dark stubble on his jaw and chin, and is also smiling slightly.
Commissioned by Sadler’s Wells. Jules Cunningham is a Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Relaxed PerformancesA Relaxed Performance is a less formal theatre experience for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a show. They support noise and movement within the auditorium during a show, re-entry when needed so house lights are left on throughout, and a separate chill-out space for anyone who might need it at any time during their visit. We also provide a Visual Story so people can familiarise themselves with the theatre and key details about the show in advance.
Audio Described PerformancesThere are a limited number of Stalls seats reserved for partially sighted patrons, and headsets available for those wishing to listen to the audio description, please email email@example.com if you wish to book these options
Touch TourTo accompany the Audio Described performance, visually impaired patrons can go on a Touch Tour before the performance. Your tour guide will take you backstage, or onto the stage itself, to feel costumes and pieces of the set and learn more about the production.
