About Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui - Genesis

Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s acclaimed company Eastman present Genesis – a show about the origins of things, commissioned by Yabin Studio. Created by Cherkaoui and Chinese dance artist Yabin Wang, known for her incredible dancing in the Echo Games sequence of the feature film House of Flying Daggers, Genesis is about life and death and the constant testing and estrangement from nature that happens in between.

Set to live music with roots in Africa, India, Japan, China and Poland, Genesis translates philosophical ideas about life, the pressures imposed on us by our society to perform and conform, into beautiful sequences of movement in which east and west, life and death, come together.
