Set in the round with some seating on stage, experience an intimate evening of dance.
How Did We Get Here? plays at Sadler’s Wells in London from 19 to 29 January 2023.
What's the story of How Did We Get Here??
What do we hold in our bodies?
The fullness of our experience is alive and present in every moment.
We feel our power, all the way to the edges of ourselves,
The loneliness of living and never fully being understood,
And the chaos that lives within and around us.
The longing in our hearts,
The unexpected happenings at the edges of our lives,
Our memories and the inrush of the future,
The voices of those near us, and those far away.
How did we get here?
Who is in the cast of How Did We Get Here??
The cast is led by Melanie Chisholm (Mel C)
Mel C trained in ballet, tap and jazz as a child, but this will be the first time she has performed contemporary dance.
Melanie Chisholm said: “As a classically trained dancer, it’s a dream come true for me to perform at Sadler’s Wells and even more so on an adventurous and groundbreaking project like this. My mind is blown when I think about starting my career with the Spice Girls, in thecrazy glare of popular culture and then 25 years later I’m coming to perform with artists of the calibre of Jules, on the stage at Sadler’s Wells. It’s a full circle cultural moment for me and I’m pinching myself!”
