“So much commitment and energy that no one could doubt that dance is in their blood"

THE TIMES, APRIL 2016
I have never been in
a rehearsal room so full of
diverse experience and energy

In-Nocentes

National Youth Dance Company (NYDC) premieres a new work by the critically acclaimed Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and NYDC 2015-16 Guest Artistic Director Michael Keegan-Dolan, award-winning Founder and Artistic Director of the former Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre.

Set to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, recomposed by Max Richter, In-Nocentes sees Keegan-Dolan utilise the clarity, integrity and power of 42 young dancers moving through space with a shared intention, each open to the possibility of transformation through the act of dancing.

Keegan-Dolan’s original approach, coupled with the dancers’ raw talent, illustrates the dynamic energy that young people bring to the creation of a new work.
