Ghost dancers stalk the stage in Christopher Bruce’s masterpiece, created as a tribute to victims of oppression in South America.

One of Rambert’s most celebrated works returns to Sadler’s Wells for the first time in 14 years.

Day of the Dead celebrations and Latin American folk music are visually referenced in dances full of joy, sadness and compassion. Also in this triple bill, Didy Veldman reveals the tale of passion and betrayal behind one of Picasso’s greatest paintings in The 3 Dancers, bringing his cubist imagery from canvas to the stage. The days run away like wild horses - a new work by Aletta Collins to Arturo Márquez’s pulsating Danzones - completes a programme of Latin-flavoured live music and virtuoso dancing with a witty, lively depiction of how everyday moments make up a life.
