Sadler’s Wells will support four such young artists in a variety of ways, including providing a stage to show their work in the Lilian Baylis Studio.
Anthony Matsena is 23-years-old and by the time the performances take place will have just graduated from the London Contemporary Dance School. His interest is hip hop.
Wilhelmina Ojanen is a 22-year-old graduate of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and is currently a member of Laban’s post-graduate company, Transitions. Her interests stretch from hip hop to jazz, ballet and contemporary dance.
Ruby Portus, 21, is also currently part of a post-graduate dance company, that of the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
Finally, 21-year-old Christopher Thomas has a wealth of stage experience which belies his young age. He started as an actor before training as a dancer, and graduated from Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in 2017. He is currently performing in Mark Bruce’s Macbeth, and has already bagged a couple of awards for choreography.
A programme such as this is not for everybody, but should appeal to those who want to keep up with the latest trends and developments in dance and enjoy being showered with new ideas and bold experiments.
