Sadler's Wells New Wave Associate TAO Dance Theatre performs a brand new double bill as part of Dance Umbrella, returning to Sadler’s Wells following sell out shows in the Lilian Baylis Studio in the spring.

Formed in 2008 by Beijing-based choreographer Tao Ye, TAO Dance Theatre is known for its collaborations across art forms including film and visual art, creating dances that have a mesmeric, trance-like quality. In 6 & 7, he continues his numbered series of experimentations that explore the potential of the human body as a purely visual form, freed from the constraints of story-telling or representation.

In 6, his six dancers move in dynamic and hypnotising unison, in a shifting landscape of light created by Swedish lighting designer Ellen Ruge. His latest work 7 continues Tao Ye’s fascination with pattern, precision and ritual, and is distinguished by a sound track of acoustic effects generated by the seven dancers’ own bodies. Both 6 & 7 will be accompanied by specially commissioned music from Chinese indie folk composer Xiao He.
