Umanoove | Didy Veldman
You’re invited to a completely different wedding celebration where the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids are world-class dancers and audience members are the wedding guests. Performed to Stravinsky’s Les Noces which draws on Russian folk wedding traditions and a specially commissioned score by Ben Foskett, this supremely physical work explores the ritual, doubt, nerves and sheer magic of weddings. Didy Veldman’s new work follows the huge success of The Happiness Project.
Commissioned by DanceEast, with support from Studio Wayne McGregor through the FreeSpace programme and funds from Arts Council England, Linbury Trust, The Master Charitable Trust, The Marina Kleinwort Trust, Beth Krasna and an anonymous donor.
