A String Of Rites - RIOT Offspring : National Youth Dance Company (NYDC), Riot Community Company
The last in the A String of Rites series, RIOT Offspring is a double bill which opens with the inaugural performance of the new National Youth Dance Company in a specially commissioned work from NYDC’s first Guest Artistic Director, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Jasmin Vardimon.
Completing the programme is a collaboration between four international choreographers - Sébastien Ramirez, Ivan Blackstock (BirdGang), Mafalda Deville and Pascal Merighi (guest artist, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch) and an intergenerational cast, brought together to create a unique dance piece with a live orchestra playing Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.
In 1913, the unfamiliar sounds of The Rite of Spring were enough to ignite rage and rioting; prompted by recent riots, the cast explore their own
perceptions of rites, rituals and riots.
The National Youth Dance Company aims to create and perform innovative and influential youth dance.
'NYDC's work is unequivocally good for its young dancers, but it is also good for audiences, offering a rewarding tour around Planet Cherkaoui' (The Guardian).
