Since she founded her company Vocab Dance in 2017, Alesandra Seutin has gradually built an international reputation for her thought-provoking and visually striking creations, whether for small stages, large venues or even outside the walls. Subjects that touch on and reflect social, political and economic issues stimulate her creativity. Through movement, voice and music, she creates paintings that trigger discussions. Her recent productions include: Giant, an immersive dance and installation duo and a new group choreography, Boy Breaking Glass, which premiered at Sadler’s Wells, London in October 2018 and Dear Winnie, which has been touring the Netherlands and Belgium since 2019. Alesandra Seutin also supports young emerging dancers and choreographers and recently provided the dramaturgy and writing for the show À travers l’autre for the twins Doris and Nathalie Bokongo Nkumu, known as Les Mybalés. In 2020-21, she will also be the guest artistic director of the National Youth Dance Company (NYDC) at Sadler’s Wells.
