A genuine 21st century company, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet was only formed in 2003. But Nancy Walton Laurie’s New York based troupe, under the mercurial artistic direction of Benoit-Swan Pouffer, has already established itself as one of America’s most enterprisingly original companys.

Now, for the first time, they’re crossing the pond to dip their toes into London’s Sadler’s Wells. From Thursday 11 October – Saturday 13 October 2012 they’ll be bringing their highly physical integration of classical and contemporary dance with mulit-media exploration in what should be an extremely entertaining Triple Bill.

Although this is their first visit to the UK they’re bringing plenty of Sadler’s Wells connections with them. The programme includes the UK premieres of Violet Kid by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter (“The splendid Violet Kid simultaneously glowed in golden beauty and festered with relentless gloom” says the LA Times – so there) and Grace Engine by Sadler’s Wells Debut initiative beneficiary Crystal Pite. Alexander Ekman’s Tuplet completes the night.

If you can’t wait until October 11 you could always get a sneak preview by checking out some performance clips on the repertoire page of their website: http://cedarlakedance.com/repertoire

Tickets are available from http://www.sadlerswells.com/ or on the phone 0844 412 4300
