Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter’s caustic and thrilling trilogy Barbarians returns: three wildly different takes on intimacy, passion and the banality of love.

Revealing Shechter’s choreography at its most elegant and intimate, The Barbarians In Love opens the evening. Six white-clad figures move as one to the strains of an ecclesiastic baroque score.

This world is soon exploded in tHE bAD, when innocence is lost, and its trance-like dup-step grooves transition into the final piece, a darkly emotional duet.

Featuring world-class dancers and a powerful score, this is the ultimate visceral experience, from the creator of the modern classic Political Mother.

Please note this production is recommended for ages 14+. Contains nudity, explicit lyrics and very loud music.
