With performances on 3 days only, 11th, 12th, 13th October 2012 New York’s Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet makes their much anticipated UK premiere at Sadlers Wells with classical technique in works created by some of today?s most provocative dance makers.

Cedar Lake is one of the world’s most exciting dance companies led by artistic director Benoit-Swan Pouffer. Benoit-Swan Pouffer has been Artistic Director of Cedar Lake since 2005. His original works for Cedar Lake include “Seed,” “Between Here and Now,” “Hammer,” “Vastav” and “Glassy Essence.”

Hofesh Shechter’s Violet Kid examines man’s struggle for harmony within a complex and often horrifying universe. Performed by all 16 dancers, Shechter’s original score features recorded audio text performed by the choreographer.

Tuplet is a pulsating work for six dancers choreographed by Alexander Ekman posing the question, what is rhythm? Set to a score created in collaboration with the dancers own rhythmic impulses and using their bodies as percussion, the soundscape is integrated with electronic music composed by Mikael Karlsson.

A former star of Sadler’s Wells Debut initiative, Canadian choreographerCrystal Pite’s Grace Engine concludes the bill, continuing her exploration of the familiar storylines that connect mankind.
