Sadler’s Wells presents Janine Harrington

STACK is a playful and interactive dance-puzzle in the ‘People Make Patterns’ series of works (alongside The Performing Book and 3×3) by choreographer, performer and writer Janine Harrington. Following ongoing interest in play, learning and coding, STACK proposes an environment in which five dancers and an audience meet in a real-time interactive situation.

STACK behaves like an open-ended game where dancers amass and scatter in various configurations following a logic to be discovered by the audience through their own positions in space. Audience can work together to compose or erode an image, to bring dancers together or keep them apart. The invitation to the audience is to play, together.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England with additional support from South East Dance and Roehampton Dance.
