Book les ballets C de la B Tickets at the Sadlers Wells, London

About les ballets C de la B

Following a successful European tour, the critically acclaimed Gardenia by leading contemporary dance collective, les ballets C de la B comes to Sadler’s Wells for a limited run.

Inspired by the penetrating film Yo soy así, in which the closing of a transvestite cabaret in Barcelona reveals the private lives of a memorable group of aging artists, Gardenia is a collaboration between transvestite actress Vanessa Van Durme, directors Alain Platel and Frank Van Laecke, and composer Steven Prengels.

"One of the most influential dance theatre companies in the world"

In the most intimate of tales, this unique show goes deep into the turbulent lives of nine people; seven older individuals navigating the zone between masculine and feminine, and a younger man and ‘real’ woman. Each carries their own intriguing story, sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious. Based on the real experiences of the cast, Gardenia indulges the human instinct for voyeurism in a visual show that harmonises dance, song and the arresting contemporary music of Steven Prengels.
