Alexander Whitley Dance Company - Overflow

Alexander Whitley’s recent production 8 Minutes took audiences on a breathtaking journey to the sun. Overflow, his company’s new work, is a compelling and timely exploration of the human condition in the era of big data, when our emotions and behaviour have become the raw materials of the digital economy.

Featuring an exhilarating new score by composer Ryan Lee West (Rival Consoles), stunning kinetic light sculpture by Children of the Light (with creative technologists Fenyce and lighting designer Guy Hoare) and striking costumes by award-winning designer, Ana Rajcevic. Overflow is a powerful, personal and visually captivating investigation into the presence and impact of technology and data on modern life.

“What happens when the surrounding market cosmos disguises itself as my mirror, shape-shifting according to what it has decided I feel or felt or will feel?” Shoshana Zuboff, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

Commissioned by Sadler’s Wells, and supported by Arts Council England, Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, the London Community Foundation, MA Scène Nationale-Pays de Montbéliard, PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund for Organisations, Bonnie Bird New Choreography Fund and DanceEast.   Alexander is New Wave Associate at Sadler’s Wells Theatre.
