Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Jasmin Vardimon is a leading force in British Dance Theatre. Enjoying sell-out performances across the UK and internationally, her company's works include Freedom, Justitia, 7734 and Yesterday. She returns this autumn with a new version of her hit show PARK , the first of Vardimon's large scale stage shows.
Park is an urban oasis, a place of refuge from ordinary life where eight characters play, fight, fall in love and learn to survive. In this playground of relationships , young lovers wrestle in a historic fountain, a graffiti artist sprays his story, a busker finds his only appreciative audience in a bag lady and a flag-waving bully rants worn out political beliefs. Their stories intertwine creating a modern day fairytale that is alternately sharp, funny and cruel.
Contrasting pieces set to an ecletic soundtrack that includes Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Brian Eno and Fiona Apple, PARK has been reworked for 2014 with new 3D imaging, presenting a breathtaking collision of highly acute physical theatre, text, athletic dance and funky music, delivering fresh statements about our time.
