Michael Clark Company

Trade fair


Michael Clark is at the forefront of innovation in dance, collaborating with artists including Sarah Lucas, Charles Atlas and Jarvis Cocker. Performances are marked by a mixture of technical rigour and experimentation, intense choreography intersecting with elements of punk, Dada, pop and rock.

The company performs at leading houses worldwide, as well as on its home stage at the Barbican. Clark has also introduced dance to new audiences by performing at unorthodox venues such as the Glastonbury Festival, Tate Modern and the Whitney Biennial.

“Raw, dynamic and witty... mixing the sacred and profane, the classical and the raw, to sophisticated and often hypnotic effect” The Guardian

“A triptych of abstract dances that look fantastic, sound terrific and knocked me sideways… here his artistry reaches a zenith” The Times
