Scottish Ballet

June 7-10, 2017

Scotland's national ballet company presents a double bill programme that showcases two awe-inspiring and very differing works of dance on this visit to London's Sadler's Wells. Emergence, choreographed by Associate Artist Crystal Pite mimics a literal hive of activity, where the 38-strong corps de ballets transform into insectoids; the second work MC 14/22 by Angelin Preljocaj celebrates the male form through a series of biblically themed vignettes. Cruelty, passion and masculinity are perfectly displayed by the corps of 12 dancers.


June 13-14, 2017

Part of Sadlers Wells' contemporary classics season, Anne Theresa De Keersmaeker's iconic work Rain will be performed by her renowned dance company Rosa in a welcome return to London. Created in 2001, it is notable for its deceptively simple footwork within a geometric space. Performed to the modernistic Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich, the piece explores both individualism and cameraderie between its 10 dancers. Speed and breath seem to be shared between the dancers as the speed increases into pure exhuberance!

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.

Dorrance Dance: Double Down

July 12-15, 2017

Tap is the first great American dance medium and Michelle Dorrance's energetic dance company make it their mission to showcase the best! Based in New York, Dorrance Dance aim to take tap to a whole new level, incorporating modern music including electronica and even the songs of Adele (!) as they combine their diverse talents into truly electrifying shows. ETM, their latest show to hit London is a collaboration with electronic artist Nicholas Van Young, turning the stage into an instrument in its own right.

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.
