Sporty Spice to perform at Sadlers Wells

Melanie Chisholm, aka Sporty Spice, will take to the London stage next year in a special dance piece.

She’s collaborated with choreographer Jules Cunningham and dancer Harry Alexander on how did we get here?, which will run at Sadlers Wells from 19th to 29th January.

The piece examines “the unique physicality that these three performers bring to the creative process, stripping back familiarity and habit to reveal what’s written and held in the body through its rich movement history.”

Speaking about the production, Chisholm sais: “As a classically trained dancer, it’s a dream come true for me to perform at Sadler’s Wells and even more so on an adventurous and groundbreaking project like this.

“My mind is blown when I think about starting my career with the Spice Girls, in the crazy glare of popular culture and then 25 years later I’m coming to perform with artists of the calibre of Jules, on the stage at Sadler’s Wells. It’s a full circle cultural moment for me and I’m pinching myself!”
