A Winged Victory For The Sullen

A Winged Victory For The Sullen’s Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Hallaran have collaborated with contemporary dance master Wayne McGregor on an OST to his new ballet, ‘Atomos’. The show, which “imagines the indivisible order created through uncuttable structures and interwoven with an architectural manipulation of bodies”, premieres at London’s Sadler’s Wells theatre on 9 Oct, with Wiltzie, O’Hallaran and a string ensemble present to play the score live.

AWVFTS say in sync: “The nature of this project has invariably guided our compositions into a strange world we did not create. We are really testing the ability to leave vanity, and the safety of our whole notes in the closet. It seems quite fitting that our next musical output is also our first foray into dance with this lovely human being, from that island across the pond, Wayne McGregor. We continue into the unknown”.

The pair have set several pre- Sadler’s Wells dates, and they are as listed:

1 Oct: London, Village Underground
2 Oct: Reading, South Sea Arts Centre
3 Oct: Leicester, Bishop Street Church
4 Oct: Gateshead, The Sage
