Ballo Arthur Pita | Ten Sorry Tales

Arthur Pita is celebrated for his surreal take on story-telling, combining dance, theatre, live music and song. 

There couldn’t be a more fitting end to DanceEast's tenth anniversary year, than a performance from a company who were with them at their opening Gala in September 2009 and who performed as part of the Jerwood DanceHouse opening season in February 2010, with God’s Garden

Ten Sorry Tales presents a collection of modern-day fables. From the child who sleeps for fifteen years, to the sinister sisters who prey on trespassers and the boy who brings butterflies back to life – Mick Jackson’s tales are by turns moving and gruesome, funny and dark. Beautifully eccentric and infused with gothic charm, Ten Sorry Tales will steal you away on a journey of curiosity.

In this new commission by DanceEast and Sadler’s Wells, Ten Sorry Tales follows the success of Pita’s critically-acclaimed Metamorphosis (The Linbury, Royal Opera House), The Little Match Girl (DanceEast, Sadler’s Wells), The World’s Greatest Show (DanceEast, Royal Opera House) and Stepmother/Stepfather (DanceEast, The Place).
