"The choreographer Damien Jalet gives his young dancers a strong starting concept for this energetic, exhilarating show"

THE TIMES, APRIL 2017
Driven by their urge to dance, we explore together
in Tarantiseismic how notions of abandonment, instability, empowerment
through collective energy could convey in one common, complex yet transcending rhythm.

National Youth Dance Company premiere a new work created by the 2016-17 Guest Artistic Director Damien Jalet.

This new commission sees Jalet and the company of 39 young dancers present a unique piece of theatre which addresses themes of melancholia, ritual, control and abandon. Jalet’s revered choreographic style combined with the young dancers’ energy and talent is set to produce a mesmerising experience that shifts the consciousness of the audience.

The production will premiere at Sadler’s Wells on 19th April 2017 and will then tour across the country during June and July 2017.
