Nico Muhly’s pioneering music, played live by Britten Sinfonia, is the subject of a new triple bill from choreographers Julie Cunningham, Michael Keegan-Dolan and Justin Peck. Inspired by murder ballad The Two Sisters, Sadler’s Wells associate artist Keegan-Dolan interprets the dark folk-song arrangement of “The Only Tune”, sung live by Sam Amidon. Cunningham selects Drones, a reflection on the subtle and constant noise in most dwelling places. Peck’s work is accompanied by a new composition and performed by New York City Ballet, including star dancers Sara Mearns and Gonzalo Garcia, in their first London performances since 2008. Sadler’s Wells’ Composer Series partners contemporary composers’ music with exceptional contemporary choreographers to create new works.
