Description

See the latest work by Michael Clark, acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. Described by London's Evening Standard as 'an adrenaline shot that sends you away buzzing'.

At first, a reflection on Erik Satie and his influence on Clark's mentors past and present – the dance meticulous and coolly refined. Next, commanding choreography pulsating with a propulsive force to the punk rock of Patti Smith's landmark album, Horses. Then, an iridescent tribute to David Bowie, intricate, sublime, the mood moving from elegiac to joyously rebellious.

Enjoying its world premiere at the Barbican, London in 2016, the Olivier Award nominated to a simple, rock 'n' roll . . . song. comprises a triple bill of gorgeously arresting choreography. Performances by a company of fearless and otherworldly dancers are complemented by Charles Atlas's scintillating lighting design, which features a stage adaptation of his multi--‐channel video installation Painting by Numbers.

Commissioned by Barbican, London. Supported by Patrons of New Work. Co-produced by Barbican, London, Michael Clark Company and Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg. Michael Clark Company is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Reviews

It flowers into moments of warmth – particularly in its tribute to David Bowie

Independent

This latest programme from the choreographer Michael Clark is a triptych of abstract dances that look fantastic, sound terrific and knocked me sideways. Clark has always been a huge talent, but here his artistry reaches a zenith in which being chic and being smart are allied to a real passion for pure dance.

The Times

Raw, dynamic and witty... mixing the sacred and profane, the classical and the raw, to sophisticated and often hypnotic effect.
