Message In A Bottle returns to the Peacock Theatre from Wednesday 29 September – Sunday 17 October, featuring gravity-defying lyrical hip hop dance by Kate Prince and breath-taking music by Sting.
Message In A Bottle, produced by Sadler’s Wells and Universal Music UK, received its world premiere in spring 2020 and is the latest dance theatre show from triple Olivier Award-nominee and Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince (Some Like it Hip Hop, Into the Hoods). The show is set to the hits of 17-time Grammy Award-winning artist Sting and features the astonishing talents of dance storytelling powerhouse, ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company.
