Seutin has created work for Sadler’s Wells’ resident over-60s performance company, Company of Elders, premieres as part of Elixir Festival on 14 June at the Lilian Baylis Studio.
Extract of a review by Josephine Leask for DanceTabs:
"Seutin rescues the rich, cultural traditions of the Congo from the negative, Eurocentric associations of a country shredded by poverty, violence and civil war but also reveals the performative versatility of the Elders. With their curiosity, openness and skill they embrace the challenge of embodying these African anti-colonialists throwing themselves into a different cultural terrain and defying any notion that older people are narrow minded or stuck in their ways.”
