The second production in the autumn season’s Wild Card programme, Cooperire, comes from producer Anand Bhatt in the Lilian Baylis Studio at Sadler’s Wells on the 30 October 2013. The evening features a mixed bill of new work from UK and international artists.

The evening includes the UK Premiere of new work, Portland, by celebrated Spanish choreographer Marcos Morau, performed by Lali Ayguade. UK/French choreographer and artistic director of Company Decalage, Marso Riviere presents a new version of his 2007 work Appel. Originally created for Company Decalage, in this version Marso uses new dancers and re-mounts the piece to pave the way of finding rich new ways of expressing movement blending cultural infleunces.


Cooperire also features the duet We Are Made of Stories, choreographed and performed by Hofesh Shechter Company member Karima El-Amrani and dancer Victoria Hoyland, this piece was first performed as part of 2013’s Resolution at The Place. The evening’s programme also features the World Premiere of Glasshouses from Australian choreographer Lewis Major which features lighting from Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Michael Hulls.


Also included in the programme is a pre-show performance by American Kathak dancer Natalia Hildner. With her stunning display of grace and expression Natalia is one of the most intriguing performers of Kathak today. Her pre-show performance will see the front of house space transformed into a mehfil - a performance of classical Indian dance performed for a small audience in an intimate setting.


The evening is compered by renowned spoken word artist and former UK Slam Poetry Champion John Berkavitch.
