The Knot by Didy Veldman / Umanoove

Performed on 29 November, 2018


Overview

You’re invited to a completely different wedding celebration where the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids are all world-class dancers and audience members are the wedding guests.

The Knot, about ritual, doubt, nerves and the sheer magic of weddings is Didy Veldman’s latest dance creation.

A cast of seven perform to Les Noces, Stravinsky’s gorgeous music from a Russian folk wedding and a specially commissioned score by Ben Foskett. The work is supremely physical and theatrical, with beautiful costumes and set by Joana Dias, evocative lighting from Ben Ormerod and moments of participation to ensure you’re at the heart of the celebration.

Commissioned by DanceEast, with support from Studio Wayne McGregor through the FreeSpace programme and funds from Arts Council England, Linbury Trust, The Master Charitable Trust – The Marina Kleinwort Trust, Beth Krasna and an anonymous donor.

Running time: 70 mins, no interval
