About Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet — Triple Bill
Founded in 2003, New York based Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet has been recognised for its exceptionally talented dancers and an emphasis on cultivating collaborations with the world's most sought-after choreographers. Under the artistic direction of Benoit-Swan Pouffer, Cedar Lake has amassed one of the most diverse repertoires in contemporary dance. The 2013-2014 season marks the company’s tenth anniversary and also marks a return to Sadler’s Wells after a hugely successful first visit last year.
"A crack team of performers juicily tackling the stuff of life and death and dance" - Evening Standard
"A uniformly fabulous group of dancers" - The Guardian
The company will be performing three works that illustrate daring athleticism. Opening the programme is Indigo Rose, a dazzling showcase for the Cedar Lake dancers, created by renowned choreographer Jiří Kylián. Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue, by Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, is a stunning example of a clearly defined vision where nothing is tentative or inefficient. Completing the bill, Necessity, Again by Norwegian Jo Strømgren is a bold, joyous piece in which fun triumphs, performed to a selection of songs by Charles Aznavour.
