Announcing… Cycles

Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy

The Olivier award-winning dance theatre company returns with a world premiere that celebrates change and the beauty of perpetual motion.

Resolutely and unapologetically hip hop, eight powerful dancers fill the space in what feels like unending motion. Celebrating the repetition and tenacity of our natural world, from day to night, birth and death, the tides, the ticking of time on a clock, the seasons and the steady rhythms of 1 2 3 4, Cycles is movement at its most fluid, distilled and skilled.

Founded by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy, the company – a Barbican Artistic Associate – has earned critical acclaim and Olivier Award nominations for their work.

They have wowed audiences from New York to Taiwan and recently co-created the smash hit Free Your Mind in Manchester.
