Sideways Rain

Sideways Rain

At Sadler's Wells

Price from € 28.30

Alias is an award-winning contemporary dance company based in Geneva led by choreographer and director Guilherme Botelho. Since its creation, Aliashas produced more than 20 new works and performed in Europe, Africa, Asia and North and South America to critical acclaim. Guilherme Botelho's Sideways Rain is a metaphor for the primal energy running through all living things. Performed by 16 dancers, they walk, run, fall, rise, stop and then start again, depicting the evolution of man and the human urge to constantly change and move forwards. Set to a chillingly hypnotic score by Mexican artist Fernando Corona best known as Murcof, Sideways Rain is a powerfully visual examination of human nature. Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Guilherme Botelho is a former ballet dancer who conceived Alias out of a desire to create dance using a more intuitive approach, teaching his dancers to listen to their bodies, voices and most intimate thoughts to create emotionally resonant work.
