Sadler’s Wells presents Out Of Asia 2

First Published 20 September 2016, Last Updated 21 September 2016

Building on the successes of its first Out of Asia season in 2011, Sadler’s Wells presents Out Of Asia 2, another rare opportunity to experience outstanding dance from Asia’s vibrant and rapidly developing performing arts world, bringing new perspectives and energy to stages across the globe. From October to December 2016, the season showcases a range of works by established and emerging companies, including UK Premieres from China and Taiwan, as well as four independent choreographers from Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia and India, in a special collaboration with an artist from Singapore.

The project is split into two parts. The first is a free exhibition, across the Sadler’s Wells public spaces for the duration of the Out Of Asia Season, featuring video interviews and dance documentaries that map dance-makers across the region. The second is a performance programme with two double bills and the final element is a series of talks curated by Ka Fai called Inside Asia.

The season’s performances will open with TAO Dance Theatre, a company established in 2008 by Beijing-based choreographer Tao Ye, playing at Sadler’s Wells. At The Peacock, one of China’s most respected and innovative cultural exports, The China National Peking Opera Company, will return with two shows. In the Lilian Baylis Studio, Singaporean artist and performance maker Choy Ka Fai presents SoftMachine, a multimedia project investigating the contemporary status of dance across Asia.

Out Of Asia 2 will run from 3 October to 2 December 2016 with tickets ranging from £12 – £45. For more information and to book tickets, visit the official website.
