The Toad Knew

May 3-7, 2017

James Thierree invites you back into his wonderfully weird world with his newest work The Toad Knew. Blending aspects of acrobatics, mime, dance and more this is a unique visit to a surreal landscape where six characters find themselves in a strange lair where nothing is as it seems. Transformations, magical self-playing instruments, and odd beasts collide to create a vibrant spectacle of physical performance and marvellous illusion!

Northern Ballet: Casanova

May 9-13, 2017

After the powerhouse that was 2016's South Bank Sky Arts Dance Award winner, 1984, Northern Ballet returns to London with their newest work, a dazzling telling of the life of the most famous lothario in history. The first full-length ballet from Kenneth Tindall, adapted from Ian Kelly's 2008 biography, you can expect plenty of passion, intrigue, and drama from this exciting world premiere production!

Rambert: Ghost Dances and other works

May 16-20, 2017

The esteemed Rambert dance company bring their famed interpretation Christopher Bruce's beguiling 1981 work Ghost Dances back to London in 2017, marking the production's first outing in 14 years. A masterpiece of contemporary dance, this evocative tribute to South American oppression leads a Latin-American infused triple bill that includes Didy Velman's The 3 Dancers and a new work from Aletta Collins.

Richard Alston: Triple Bill

June 16, 2017

Richard Alston and his dance company return to Sadlers Wells with an exciting triple-bill lineup that includes a brand-new work, Chacony. Inspired by the powerful Chaconne of Henry Purcell, and the later tribute by Britten's String Quartet No.2, the two pieces of music are used together by Alston to explore darkness and the light of humanity. This work will be accompanied by Martin Lawrance's Tangent, where four couples dance the tango exotically. This is rounded off by Alston's popular Gypsy Mixture, a celebration of Romanian and Macedonian gypsy bands that will lift your soul.

Matthew Bourne's Cinderella

December 9, 2017-January 27, 2018

After last year's stunning adaptation of The Red Shoes, Matthew Bourne once again returns to the fairytale realm with this revival of his beloved Cinderella from New Adventures. Moving the action from once up a time to the heart-stopping era of the Blitz, Cinders finds herself in the arms of a handsome RAF pilot before an air raid separates the new lovers in this vivid and evocative production.
