Requiem pour L. : Fabrizio Cassol and Alain Platel at Sadler’s Wells – 20th and 21st March 2018

Alain Platel, the trailblazing founder and director of Belgian contemporary dance collective les ballets C de la B, returns to Sadler’s Wells, alongside regular collaborator, composer and musical director Fabrizio Cassol, for the UK premiere of Requiem pour L.

Cassol and Platel join forces once again in a work inspired by Mozart’s final and unfinished work. With 14 musicians from across Europe and Africa, Cassol reconstructs the Requiem using diverse musical influences from popular African music to jazz and opera. Platel uses the imagery that Mozart’s music conjures up, from the requiem mass to the mass grave into which Mozart himself was dumped, to build a visual world of death and ritual for the musicians and dancers to inhabit.

Pre-show Director’s Conversation: Tuesday 20 March at 6pm, Alistair Spalding in conversation with Fabrizio Cassol and Alain Platel; £7.50 or £4 in conjunction with a ticket to see the production that evening.
