WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Founded in 2003, New York based Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet has been recognised for its exceptionally talented dancers and an emphasis on cultivating collaborations with the world's most sought-after choreographers. Under the artistic direction of Benoit-Swan Pouffer, Cedar Lake has amassed one of the most diverse repertoires in contemporary dance.
The 2013-2014 season marks the company's tenth anniversary and also marks a return to Sadler's Wells after a hugely successful first visit last year. The company will be performing three works that illustrate daring athleticism. Opening the programme is Indigo Rose, a dazzling showcase for the Cedar Lake dancers, created by renowned choreographer Jir? Kyli?n. Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue, by Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, is a stunning example of a clearly defined vision where nothing is tentative or inefficient. Completing the bill, Necessity, Again by Norwegian Jo Str?mgren is a bold, joyous piece in which fun triumphs, performed to a selection of songs by Charles Aznavour. Running time: 2hrs (including two 20min intervals)
