    In 2015, NYDC premiered a new work by renowned Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

    The create Frame[d], Guest Artistic Director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui worked with the company to revisit moments from four of his works, integrating new ideas and movement material from the dancers in a stimulating collaborative process.

    I’m very proud of Frame[d] and everyone at NYDC – SIDI LARBI CHERKAOUI
