Michael Clark is an iconic British dancer, choreographer, and artist who first came to prominence in the early 1980s. His work combines the classical ballet of his training with a more complex, contemporary sensibility. He is renowned for his legendary collaborations with bands, fashion designers and visual artists including Wire, Leigh Bowery, Trojan, Peter Doig and Sarah Lucas.
Michael Clark Company’s new work is a double bill of choreographed to specially commissioned music, and will continue Clark’s history of close collaboration with contemporary artists, designers and musicians, and include lighting design by artist and filmmaker Charles Atlas, and costumes by Stevie Stewart, formerly of Bodymap.
Recently announced.... the music for this new work will be provided by Relaxed Muscle; Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and one third of Sheffield electronica group All Seeing I's Jason Buckle; and Scritti Politti
