Overview

Christopher Bruce’s 1981 masterpiece returned to Sadler’s Wells for the first time in fourteen years. Ghost Dances is one of contemporary dance’s most celebrated pieces, having returned to the London stage as part of a 2017 UK tour. During evening performances, there was a triple bill of new dance works, with performances beginning in May.

Ghost Dances is the evocative tribute to victims of political oppression in South America, telling passionate stories of love and death, as the frightening ghost dancers begin invade daily life. With visual references of the Day of the Dead celebrations, the dancers pound to the rhythms of traditional Latin-American songs in this iconic, intensely moving piece.

Further works in this triple bill included Didy Veldman’s The 3 Dancers, which studies the passion and betrayal behind one of Picasso’s greatest paintings. Aletta Collins choreographs to Arturo Marquez’s Danzones, completing a playful programme of Latin-flavoured music.

Ghost Dances featured choreography and set design by the legendary Christopher Bruce, as well as music arranged by Nicholas Mojsiejenko, costume design by Belinda Scarlett and lighting design by Nick Chelton. This was the perfect chance to see one of dance’s most well-known pieces and two brand new works, which played a limited five performances from May 16th 2017.
