Hailed as “British dance’s true iconoclast,” renowned choreographer Michael Clark will make his Miami debut, showcasing new works that feature his signature mix of technical rigor and experimentation. Since emerging in the 1980s as a prodigy at London’s Royal Ballet School, Michael Clark has remained at the forefront of innovation in dance, collaborating with such compelling artists as Sarah Lucas, Leigh Bowery, Peter Doig, and Charles Atlas – among many others – winning rave reviews and countless awards. Michael Clark and his distinctive choreography combine interpretations of ballet, punk, Dada, pop, and rock forms.
