Sadlers Wells Theatre's Composer Series features evenings devoted to the works of a contemporary composer choreographed by a wide range of contemporary choreographers. The third such evening is devoted to Nico Muhly (previous Composer Series events focused on Mark-Anthony Turnage in 2011, and Thomas Ades in 2014). Nico Muhly: Drawn Lines at Sadler's Wells Theatre from 19 to 21 March 2021, will feature three works by Muhly, performed by the Britten Sinfonia with Muhly conducting, and choreography by Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate Julie Cunningham (a former dancer with Merce Cunningham Dance Company and Michael Clark Company), Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Michael Keegan-Dolan and the Netherlands-based Spanish choreographer Iván Pérez.

Michael Keegan-Dolan's The Two Sisters uses Muhly's folk-song arrangement The Only Tune and will feature dancers from Keegan-Dolan's Ireland-based company Teaċ Daṁsa, who will be joined on stage by folk singer Sam Amidon and nine musicians. Julie Cunningham's work uses Muhly's Drones. Iván Pérez' Flutter uses Muhly's Mother Tongue. The work was premiered at Pure Dance at Sadler’s Wells in 2019, and was created on and will feature ballet superstar Natalia Osipova.
