The Autumn tour dates for Didy Veldman’s new production The Knot are announced.

The Knot evokes a wedding celebration where the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids are all world-class dancers and audience members are the guests. About ritual, doubt, nerves and the sheer magic of weddings The Knot follows the huge success of The Happiness Project in 2016/17:

“You don’t want it to end, you want to hold on to it, put it in a box labelled “mine – hands off!” Mary Brennan, Glasgow Herald *****
“The Happiness Project is terrifically enjoyable and, marking the long-awaited launch of Veldman’s own company, it promises even better things to come.” Judith Mackrell, The Guardian ****

A cast of seven perform to LES NOCES, Stravinsky’s gorgeous music from a Russian folk wedding and a specially commissioned score by Ben Foskett. The work is supremely physical and theatrical, with beautiful costumes and set by Joana Dias, evocative lighting from Ben Ormerod, and moments of participation to ensure the audience is at the heart of the performance. After its opening in February, The Knot is touring in November and December 2018 and April-June 2020.
