Zero Degrees – Sadlers Wells On Screen

Click here for tickets  : subscription tv

World-renowned choreographer Akram Khan, Moroccan-Flemish choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Mercury Award-winning composer/producer Nitin Sawhney, and Turner Prize-winner Antony Gormley I’d cross an ocean to see the work of any one of these artists and now, here they are, together in a single work.

This piece is a remarkable collaboration between four of the world’s most respected artists. Moroccan-Flemish Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is well known for his work with Les Ballets C. de la B. while Akram Khan is world-renowned for developing his own ‘contemporary Kathak’ style, winning numerous awards. For Zero Degrees they bring their unique styles together in this spellbinding piece of contemporary dance.

Mercury Award-winning composer/producer Nitin Sawhney adds his own East-meets-West sound with a specially commissioned score played live by four musicians, and Turner Prize-winner Antony Gormley has contributed the staging – two life-size casts of the dancers.

Zero Degrees explores borders – between countries, cultures, and, most importantly, between life and death. It challenges, prompts, and inspires, in a seamless fusion of dance styles, music, and contemporary art.
