Having already confirmed a world-class line-up including headline performances from Bon Iver, Elbow and Paul Weller, plus music from the likes of Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monáe, Laura Marling and Sunday performances from Rufus Wainwright and his band and concert pianist Lang Lang, Latitude can now reveal the latest artists from the worlds of dance, music, comedy and the arts for the UK’s favourite multi-arts festival, taking place at Henham Park, Suffolk from the 12th –15th July 2012.
Latitude is delighted to announce that Sadler’s Wells will present an excerpt from the hugely popular Sadler’s Wells Production, The Most Incredible Thing on The Waterfront Stage, adding to the diverse and exciting dance line-up. A collaboration between pop legends Pet Shop Boys and choreographer/director Javier De Frutos, The Most Incredible
Thing, won the Evening Standard’s inaugural Beyond Theatre Award after its premiere in 2011, and recently enjoyed a return run at the theatre this spring. “Britain’s favourite choreographer” Matthew Bourne returns to his roots in a programme of early hit pieces that launched his career and marked the birth of the style, wit and sheer entertainment which have become hallmarks of the New Adventures Company today. Spitfire – An advertisement divertissement (1988) was Bourne’s first hit and something of a signature piece and will be performed at Latitude on Sunday. On Saturday night The Waterfront Stage will also play host to the premiere of spectacular new dance production Flash Mob before it begins a nationwide tour in 2013. The show features your favourite dancers from a variety of shows including Got To Dance, So You Think You Can Dance and Move It Like Michael Jackson.
In the Film and Music Arena Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller and co-director Nick Abraham present their new film The Bruce Lacey Experience. Three years in the making, the film examines Lacey’s remarkable legacy as a painter and sculptor, an avant-garde filmmaker and an all-round cultural chameleon. The screening will be followed by an intimate Q&A with Jeremy Deller. The Royal Albert Hall arrives at Latitude presenting the innovative and avant-pop classical violinist Hahn-Bin in the Film & Music Arena, an excellent addition to the increasingly diverse musical programme on offer at the festival.
