For their return to the Tramway stage, Michael Clark Company will bring a double bill of new work choreographed to specially commissioned music. This production will continue Clark’s history of close collaboration with contemporary artists, designers and musicians, and include lighting design by artist and filmmaker Charles Atlas, music by Relaxed Muscle and costumes by Stevie Stewart, formerly of Bodymap.


Michael Clark is an iconic British dancer, choreographer, and artist who first came to prominence in the early 1980s. His work combines the classical ballet of his training with a more complex, contemporary sensibility. He is renowned for his legendary collaborations with bands, fashion designers and visual artists including Wire, Leigh Bowery, Trojan, Peter Doig and Sarah Lucas.


Clark’s return to the Tramway will follow the company’s residencies in Tate Modern’s immense Turbine Hall in 2010 and 2011, and the Whitney Museum of American Art for the Whitney Biennial 2012.
Commissioned by Barbican, London.


Co-produced by Barbican, London, Michael Clark Company, Maison des Arts de Créteil, Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg and Tramway, Glasgow.
Michael Clark Company is supported by Arts Council England.
