“I presented this exhibition in Reykjavik in June 2013, and it consisted of two different
installations, both engaging with sound’s impact in multiple ways, so that people could both feel and create music, by hearing, touching and seeing the sound.
A new double bill by the National Youth Dance Company and Guest Artistic Director Akram Khan.
Following their premiere performance at Sadler’s Wells on Wednesday 16 April, the NYDC performs in this informal and intimate setting.
Rather than seeing the work with full theatrical staging, this is a chance for audience members to witness the passion and force of the pieces up close.
NYDC performs a restaged excerpt from Vertical Road (Akram Khan Company, 2010), alongside a new work, The Rashomon Effect, by Khan and assistant choreographer Andrej Petrovic.
It features music composed by Vincenzo Lamagna and performed live by musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
Khan is one of the most celebrated and respected dance artists today. In just over a decade he has created a body of work that has contributed significantly to the arts in the UK and abroad.
His reputation has been built on the success of imaginative, highly accessible and relevant productions; this new commission sees Khan bring a wealth of experience to his pivotal role in working with this vibrant company of young artists drawn from NYDC workshops across England.
