Precious Metal / Night Wandering

February 10th

92nd Street Y, New York

A double bill of dance work by John Scott and Merce Cunningham

Featuring an international team of technically brilliant and culturally diverse dancers and artists, John Scott's Precious Metal combines passion and virtuosity, humour and heartbreak. Using choral texts from Sophocles’ Antigone, expect wild jumps into space, wonderful rhythms and movements driven by speed and strength, all delivered with poignancy and grace.

Night Wandering, created by Merce Cunningham in 1958, is a duet reminiscent of snowy landscapes, described by Walter Sorrel as “a tender lullaby of love”. In keeping with the piece’s Nordic theme, the music by Bo Nilsson is characterized by bursts of activity followed by moments of silence, evoking the feeling of traveling through the spacious, and seemingly endless Northern night.

52 Portraits

January 26th

Sadler’s Wells, London

John Scott was selected by choreographer Jonathan Burrows to participate in 52 Portraits, a digital project created by Burrows, composer Matteo Fargion and video maker Hugo Glendinning. The project consists of a short gestural portrait of a dancer or performer released every Monday throughout 2016.

Burrows collaborated closely with his subjects to create individual choreographed portraits filmed by Glendinning, while Fargio used their words to create accompanying songs.

“these portraits capture something unique, even mysterious about each dance artist; but they also create an impressionistic portrait of the profession – highlighting the mix of inspiration, fear, delight and freedom the art form engenders, as well as the darker worries about injury, bad performances and money that stalk every career” – Judith Mackrell / The Guardian

52 Portraits is supported and produced by Sadler’s Wells Theatre
