DFS : Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud at Sadler’s Wells – 23rd and 24th April 2018

The award-winning duo Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud have collaborated since 2005 and have created works for Lyon Opera Ballet and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. They present work for the first time on the Sadler’s Wells stage, bringing their latest collaboration DFS to London.

For DFS Bengolea travelled to Jamaica to immerse herself in Kingston’s defiant dance scene, while Chaignaud pursued the study of traditional medieval vocal polyphony, focusing especially on the works by medieval French poet and composer Guillaume de Machaut. Bringing their research together, the choreographers invited three ballerinas and dancehall specialists to join them in the exploration of song and dance.

Free post-show talk: Monday 23 April; Alistair Spalding in conversation with Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud.
