World Premiere. Following on from his innovative digital work Pattern Recognition, Sadler's Wells New Wave Associate Alexander Whitley takes on the breathtaking scale of space for his company's main stage debut. Working in partnership with the scientists from STFC RAL Space at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, 8 Minutes draws inspiration from the images and data of solar science research to explore the spectacular forces at work in the universe and illuminate our relationship with the star that gives us life.

CandoCo has gained a reputation as the world's leading company of disabled and non-disabled dancers.
Yasmeen Godder's new work for Candoco, Face In, is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through images interwoven with daring and uninhibited dance. Set to an urban indie score, Candoco invites you to bask in this wild fictional world that feels uncomfortably familiar yet strangely distorted. A world that Candoco's dancers inhabit with ease: dancing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous. Alexander Whitley has swiftly become known for his strikingly physical and virtuosic choreography. Beheld, his commission for Candoco features powerful duets and breath-taking ensemble dancing with huge swathes of fabric and is set to a mesmerising score by German composer Nils Frahm, reworked by Rutger Zuydervelt. In this piece, Candoco's seven dancers explore the possibilities and constraints of the space around them, forming and reforming to consider how we look and what we see.
Igor and Moreno make work about people and what makes us such special animals. Across all their works they have always tried to create a frame to share their views without dictating a single reading, instead creating space for reflection for the viewer.

Company of the leading choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh.
Ground-breaking dance-maker Shobana Jeyasingh brings her radical imagination to Petipa's legendary ballet La Bayad?re. More than a retelling it searches for the roots of the Bayadere herself and the allure she exerted in Europe over the centuries. The words of the celebrated French writer Th?ophile Gautier, who recorded his ambiguous impressions of Indian temple dancers in 1838, add to the rich mix of Gabriel Prokofiev's specially commissioned score to form a unique and personal work. Featuring a bold new design created by the award-winning contemporary theatre designer Tom Piper, following its premiere at the Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House in 2015.
Artist and Choreographer Holly Blakey dives into the hyper-sexualised language of the music video to address ideas of connectivity, gender and class. Dancers writhe and contract in a modern day Garden of Eden, navigating the complexities of voyeurism and pleasure whilst laying bare the subtle and not-so-subtle dynamics of contemporary pop culture. Created in collaboration with musicians Gwilym Gold and Darkstar, Some Greater Class inscribes the process of viewing and being viewed on the performer's bodies, delicately commenting on the normative ideals promoted in mainstream pop culture. From explosive energy to vulnerability and transgression, the dancers' search for connection offers a potent reminder of the radical potential of live performance.
