Following the success of their 2021 production Speak VolumesNational Youth Dance Company (NYDC) once again collaborates with internationally renowned choreographer Alesandra Seutin.

Thirty-two outstanding young dancers present a new contemporary work, exploring the relationship between movement, voice and music.

"Quartier Paradis dives into parallel universes where there is no apparent endgame, a place built on the fantasy of an ardent greed for a power that continuously shifts. Where ritual, memories and ancestral heritage will keep you standing; revealing the alarming reality of a society locked in a cycle of tyranny. Who will eat the apple?"

NYDC has established a reputation for producing high quality, critically acclaimed productions by leading choreographers including Russell Maliphant, Botis Seva, Sharon Eyal, Damien Jalet, Michael Keegan Dolan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Akram Khan and Jasmin Vardimon.
