Curated by Carlos

Sadler’s Wells Digital Stage will launch its new Video on Demand platform with Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Curated by Carlos, available to rent 11–18 November 2021.

Curated by Carlos is a triple bill which includes a new pas de deux created especially for Carlos Acosta and guest artist Alessandra Ferri and two recently premiered works. Chacona is an ensemble piece for 16 dancers set to music by J S Bach created by Spanish choreographer Goyo Montero.

It will be filmed at Sadler’s Wells and directed by Dan Ormerod to accompany the recordings of Imminent from Brazilian / British choreographer Daniela Cardim and City of a Thousand Trades by Havana-born choreographer Miguel Altunaga and dramaturg and co-director Madeleine Kludje with music by Mathias Coppens, filmed at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in June 2021 and directed by Ross MacGibbon.

Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells, Alistair Spalding, said, “it’s fitting that we launch our Video on Demand offering with a company that started its life at Sadler’s Wells, curated by an artist and leader who has a long-standing relationship with Sadler’s Wells. It's the perfect way to celebrate our shared history and future.”
