I attended the premiere of Alexander Whitley Dance Company’s 8 Minutes, at Sadler’s Wells on 27 June.

I thought I’d do something different, and record my thoughts of the evening that included a post-show talk with Alex Whitley and his team of collaborators that included a scientist, composer, visual designer and dramaturg.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Alex Whitley on our podcast show, you can listen to the interesting discussion about dance, science, the choreographic and creative process, plus Alex’s life as a dancer with Birmingham Royal Ballet.
