Having completed two sold out UK tours, National Youth Dance Company returns to Sadler's Wells to premiere a new work created by the 2014-15 Guest Artistic Director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
Cherkaoui is one of the most prolific choreographers working today; a Sadler's Wells Associate Artist, he has created more than 20 works. For this new commission Cherkaoui reimagines outstanding moments from his repertoire.
