National Dance Company Wales
Short, sharp dances by Wales’ National dance company who lead you through an evening of discovery with a selection of exciting contemporary works performed by some of the world’s best dancers. Full of wit, character and stunning movement, the night will also include discussion and anecdotes from our artists.
Three dances made by a mix of home-grown talent and world-famous choreographers. Each is a bite-sized short story and different from the one before it.
- Bernadette by NDCWales’ resident choreographer Caroline Finn is like watching the outtakes from The Great British Bake Off, both hilarious and really, very tragic. This piece of comedic dance is very messy, both physically and emotionally: flour and feelings everywhere.
- Omerta by Cardiff-based Matteo Marfoglia is about the role of women in Italian Mafia families, it’s dark and liberating with powerful music and beautiful black lace costumes.
- Atalaÿ by award-winner Mario Bermudez Gil takes inspiration from the Mediterranean; it fuses hip-hop, ballet, contemporary and street styles of music and dance. It’s warm and dynamic with a soulful feel.
Company55 have been working hard with two dancers from NDCW to perform a special curtain raiser before Roots on Friday 23 Nov. NDCW have been all across Wales taking dance workshops for schools and groups, based on the themes and ideas you will see in the Roots performance.
