The Tony and Olivier Award winning choreographer of "The Lion King" Garth Fagan brings his modern dance company to perform at Sadler's Wells.
Jamaican-born Fagan has developed a thrilling signature style, fusing elements of modern dance and ballet with African and Caribbean rhythms and movement.
Fagan was born in Kingston in 1940. He dance with Ivy Baxter's Jamaican National Dance Company before moving to the US at the age of 20 to study psychology in Detroit. Whilst at university he continued to dance, training with Martha Graham, Jose Limon, Mary Hinkson and Alvin Ailey. In 1970 he moved to Rochester, NYC to teach at the University of New York. part of his job included working with disadvantaged students in downtown Rochester. From these untrained individuals he created his first dance company called the Bottom of the Bucket, But..Dance Theatre. Twenty years later in 1990, the Company's stature and dancers had improved so much it became simply Garth Fagan Dance.
