About the show

French choreographer Pierre Rigal brings his contemporary dance piece Scandale to Sadler's Wells for a strictly limited number of performances. A shamanic and contemplative show featuring a contrasting range of music genres, it seeks to answer the questions such as; is it movement or music that gave birth to dance? Part of the Breakin’ Convention: Presents initiative, which seeks to programme full-length works and provide a platform for choreographers, the show speaks to theatremakers concerned with street dance form.

Sit back and experience a soundtrack provided by live musicians, which traces ambient chamber music and electronic sound effects and is topped off by the primal chants of the performers. Watch as chaos slowly begins to find its way, culminating in structured hip hop choreography.

This is not Pierre Rigal's first time presenting work for Breakin’ Convention; in 2011 he showcased hip-hop dance piece Asphalte. He is the artistic director of Compagnie Dernière Minute and has been creating dance for video, stage and television since 2003.

Scandale is performed by members of b-boy crew Yeah Yellow. They are Steve ‘Lelong’ Kamseu, Camille ‘Kami’ Regneault and Julien ‘Bee D’ Saint-Maximin, and have previously danced at the Breakin’ Convention 2017 Luxembourg and USA tour and at Sadler’s Wells Sampled 2018.

Lovers of hip-hop and pioneering choreography should not miss the chance to witness this exciting spectacle, which plays a strictly limited run at London's Sadler's Wells, from 5 September to 6 September 2018.
