A few interesting facts: Did you know?  The premiere of 8 Minutes at Sadler’s Wells in June 2017 had a sell out audience and was Alexander Whitley Dance Company’s debut on the main stage.

★★★★ The Guardian Whitley’s choreography establishes its own enriching animating narrative: the burnished pulsing duet that feels like the heartbeat of the universe, the languid, insouciant ensemble where the dancers look like a freebooting drift of cosmic matter.

Alexander Whitley may be familiar to our dance audiences, having performed with well-known companies such as Birmingham Royal Ballet, Rambert and Wayne McGregor | Random Dance. For 8 Minutes, he has brought together two leading artists to create a mesmerizing production: BAFTA Award-winning visual artist, Tal Rosner has shown work to critical acclaim in major art institutions such as The National Theatre, Royal Court Theatre and the Barbican Centre; Daniel Wohl is an established and highly-regarded composer and has received critical praise as one of his generation’s “imaginative, skilful creators” (New York Times). 8 Minutes has high production values including a large high-definition LED screen that projects Rosner’s stunning images created from actual scientific research photos and data.
