Wild Card, a Sadler’s Wells initiative which opens up the theatre’s Lilian Baylis Studio to the next generation of choreographers and dance makers, returns for its fourth season this autumn, presenting UK born and raised dance artist Seeta Patel.

The initiative aims to bring fresh perspectives to the stage and each time gives emerging artists from different spectrums of the dance landscape the opportunity to curate a mixed bill evening of cutting edge work.

Patel has been championing the Indian classical dance Bharatanatyam for many years, at the same time as forging a distinctive career in contemporary dance under the guidance of Mavin Khoo. She has performed with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre and presented work at Southbank Centre.

Patel’s curation at the Lilian Baylis Studio will be an intimate evening of dance and music from South India, featuring an orchestra of Carnatic musicians. After her solo work she will offer a rare opportunity to see seasoned dancer and musician Pushkala Gopal in an up-close presentation of song and abhinaya, the concept of facial expression in Bharatanatyam which is used to lead the audience towards a sentiment.


There will be a free post-show talk with Mavin Khoo on Friday 26 September.
