Understanding Sugar (creation) - Jos Baker


Jos Baker will come to create a new piece with the dancers from the second and third years at the request of Patrice Delay and Sean Wood.

About the piece:
A wry look at loneliness and love. As we mature the stakes change but the fears, joys and themes in our lives stay the same. We are all searching for connections yet it often appears that everyone else finds that so much easier. When to fit in? When to stand out? And who is in charge of this relationship anyway?

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance's award-winning Entity has thrilled audiences at sell-out shows around the world. Performed against a pounding soundscape by composer Jon Hopkins, Entity is a staggering blend of bodies, lights and technology, which confirms McGregor’s place at the cutting edge of contemporary culture. Technically astonishing, emotionally uncompromising and hard-hitting, McGregor’s work defies categorisation.

"An aesthetic born of our new understanding of the body's capacity for speed, flexion and attack"
- Observer - press from original production by Wayne McGregor | Random Dance
