Puz/zle is the brand new work from Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Puz/zle questions the seeming importance of order and linearity, and explores if there is more than one way of solving a puzzle, telling a tale and simply living.
Working closely with past musical collaborators – Corsican polyphonic group. A Filetta (Apocrifu and In Memoriam), Lebanese singer Fadia Tomb El-Hage (Origine) and Japanese musician Kazunari Abe (Play, Babel (WORDS)) – Cherkaoui dissects the form of composition and identifies the various themes that can shape a song. Cherkaoui also teams up with long-time collaborator Damien Jalet, set designer Filip Peeters and costume designer Miharu Toriyama to create this long-awaited piece performed by 11 extraordinary
dancers from the Eastman company.
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is one of the most prolific contemporary dancer/choreographers working today and has helped produce some of the most groundbreaking works in recent years, including the critically revered Sutra, zero degrees and most recently, TeZukA.
