Unclassifiable Alain Platel, the trailblazing founder and director of Belgian contemporary dance collective les ballets C de la B, returns to Sadler’s Wells, alongside regular collaborator, composer and musical director Fabrizio Cassol, for the UK premiere of Requiem pour L. on Tuesday 20 & Wednesday 21 March 2018.
Cassol and Platel join forces once again in a work inspired by Mozart’s final and unfinished work. With 14 musicians from across Europe and Africa, Cassol reconstructs the Requiem using diverse musical influences from popular African music to jazz and opera. Platel uses the imagery that Mozart’s music conjures up, from the requiem mass to the mass grave into which Mozart himself was dumped, to build a visual world of death and ritual for the musicians and dancers to inhabit.
