Dance City literally explodes!
Some of the work is so fresh that it hasn’t yet been made as we go to press. Nevertheless, we can tell you that you could be among the first to see Genius (5 October) by inclusive company Anjali, which is smashing preconceptions about disability in dance. Charge (3 &4 November) is a brand new, electrifying work by Motionhouse, which looks set to blow socks off, and Dance Edits (28 September) is a chance to get the first look at new works by five emerging north-east dance talents, all commissioned by Dance City. Most of the season is suitable for all ages, but some shows are made to spark the imagination of children and young people including The Magic Fish (26 October) by ATMA Dance, a classic Indian tale retold through dance, storytelling and beatboxing. The family Christmas show is an enchanting adaptation of The Little Match Girl (30 November-3 December) by Arthur Pita Dance. Currently enjoying its fourth successful run at Sadler’s Wells, we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment. Note: with so much to see, why not take advantage of Dance City’s multi-buy ticket offer and get 20% off when you book two or more shows.
