'Continu' features music by Varèse, Xenakis and Vivier
Berlin based dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests will perform the UK premiere of Continu at Sadler's Wells Theatre in London from September 28-30. Featuring 24 dancers, the work showcases music by Varèse, Xenakis and Vivier, including a live performance of Xenakis’s Rebonds A performed by American percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky on stage as part of the choreography.
Ten years in the making, Continu has at its heart French avant-garde composer Edgar Varèse's symphonic work Arcana, written in 1927. Waltz's works are often closely inspired by music - her last UK performance was a semi-aquatic staging of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas in 2007.
