Cindy Claes was commissioned by Sadler’s Wells to curate and produce her own night.  She wanted to celebrate the achievement and beauty of three UK Dancehall generations of artists, educate people and entertain the crowd to the fullest.

Wild Card: Dancehall Theatre Takeover was a premiere within the sector to bring Dancehall to the forefront in the most renown Dance Theatre venue in London.

The line-up was epic:

  • installation/exhibition by H Patten (PhD student, visual artist, choreographer, performer)
  • solo by Paradigmz
  • “Is My Whining Winding You Up”, a three women show by Cindy Claes Productions
  • a collaboration by Shady Squad (Jamaica) & the DTX Collective (UK)
