New additions to Sadler’s Wells' Digital Stage programme include Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas with Rain and new dance workshops to try at home.

Rain will be streamed on Friday 10 April at 7:30PM (UK time) via Sadler’s Wells’ Facebook Premieres and then be available to watch on demand for seven days.

Set to Steve Reich’s minimalist Music for 18 Musicians, which is inspired by breath rhythms, interpreted by long-term Rosas collaborator Ictus Ensemble, De Keersmaeker pushes her use of mathematical structure and the geometric use of space to its limits to form a deceptively simple piece, using layers repetition and variation.

The Sadler’s Wells workshop series for audiences to dance along to at home continues on Wednesday 8 April with a flamenco-themed workshop for adults aged over 60 hosted by Lucia Caruso. Five new family workshops for children aged 2–6 years will also be available from Wednesday 8 April, with activities and themes including textures, shapes, sounds, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Upcoming films include a new version of Wilkie Branson’s dance for camera installation TOM, which would have formed part of Sadler’s Wells’ Digital Edition in April.

All videos and workshops can be found at the Sadler’s Wells Facebook and YouTube channels.
