Michael Clark Company - Harry Alexander and Benjamin Warbis by Hugo Glendinning HG

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.
