darkwood farrowscreative rgbThe new season at the Lilian Baylis features talks, intimate works and more from the Sadler’s Wells Wild Card series, which gives young artists the chance to programme an evening of work they admire.

On January 15, choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion give a lecture on their work, accompanied by piano music and cartoons. The first Wild Card evening of the season is on February 13, when Cindy Claes stages Dancehall Takeover, a mix of comedy, emotion and Jamaican street dance.

Place Prize finalist Eva Recacha curates an evening called Dear Devil on March 27, including works by Dog Kennel Hill Project and dance artists Colin, Simon and I.

Gobbledegook’s Deep in the Woods (pictured), created for young audience, returns from April 18 to 19.

Hetain Patel, a visual artist who creates works for the stage, presents the world premiere of American Boy on May 20 to 21.

TAO Dance Theatre, one of China’s leading contemporary dance troupes, presents a double bill of 4 and 5. In 4, the dancers appear to be moved by a magnetic wave. In 5, five dancers perform together, never separating. The show is at the Lilian Baylis Studio from June 6 to 7.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, November 11 from or 0844 412 4300.
