Nico Muhly’s pioneering music, played live by Britten Sinfonia, is the subject of this new triple bill at Sadler’s Wells from Julie Cunningham, Michael Keegan-Dolan and Justin Peck.
Inspired by murder ballad The Two Sisters, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Keegan-Dolan interprets dark folk-song arrangement The Only Tune, sung live by Sam Amidon. Cunningham selects Drones, a reflection on the subtle and constant noise in most dwelling places. Peck’s work is accompanied by a new composition and performed by New York City Ballet in their first London performance since 2008.
Sadler’s Wells’ Composer Series partners contemporary composer’s music with exceptional contemporary choreographers to create new works.
