The Elixir Festival celebrates older dance artists and lifelong creativity. Held at London’s Sadler’s Wells from September 12 to 15, it includes workshops, performances and a full day conference, titled Art of Age.
A Scandinavian season, a collaboration between composer Thomas Adès and choreographers Karole Armitage, Wayne McGregor, Crystal Pite and Alexander Whitley and a new work by Akram Khan and flamenco star Israel Galván (pictured) are among the highlights of the autumn season at London dance venue Sadler’s Wells.
Performed for one night only, on Monday, April 23, Compass brings together a team of choreographers, composers, musicians and more than 100 dancers in a new production celebrating London’s variety.
Opening tonight, the Connect Festival is two weeks celebrating dance and learning throughout life. Presented by the creative learning department of Sadler’s Wells, the programme goes from youth dance showcases to a performance by the Company of Elders, whose members are all over 60.
