Tricodex is a vertical and horizontal trip through the magical, glittering maze of Decouflé’s imagination. Read More >

Featuring 30 dancers and 150 costumes, Decouflé’s enchanted universe combines tableaux of breathtaking beauty with witty aerial ballets. A dancing bicyclist performs acrobatics 18 feet above the stage, while two ballerinas defy gravity in a bungeejumping duet.

Tricodex is inspired by Codex Serafinius, a fanciful encyclopaedia of mythical animals, imaginary plants, hairstyles, playing cards, flying machines and labyrinths. Decouflé brings all this to life, blending the worlds of dance, circus and visual arts.

This is Lyon Opera Ballet’s second visit to Sadler’s Wells, after their highly acclaimed, subversive take on Cinderella in 2003.
