Catalan dance phenomenon Sol Picó and her multi award-winning company make their first visit to Sadler’s Wells with El Llac de les Mosques (The Lake of the Flies), a piece which explores the choices we all face in middle age through the medium of a rock ‘n’ roll concert.
With an exceptional live band playing everything from blues to flamenco and heavy rock, Sol Picó presents her own take on getting older – ignore the clock, enjoy the journey and do all the things you’ve always wanted to. Accompanied by one male dancer and an actor, the result is an impassioned, dynamic, and at times surreal display of dance with her trademark injection of black humour.
"European performance of the highest professional standards"
