    From hip hop to ballet, stages flooded with water and shows influenced by brass bands, The Beatles and Björk – we’ve got your spring ‘19 dance fix covered.

    We have officially announced the line-up for an incredible season of dance next spring, with members priority booking available from Wednesday 31 October, and public booking from Monday 5 November.

    Here are some highlights to add to your 2019 dance diary…

    Matthew Bourne fans are in for treat with the recently announced world premiere production of Romeo & Juliet (7 – 31 August) coming to the Sadler’s Wells stage in August as part of a UK tour. The choreographer known for his hugely popular and magical ballet adaptations of well-known classics will now turn his trademark storytelling style to Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed lovers with a passionate and contemporary re-imagining. Britain’s brightest young dance talent join the New Adventures company for this production, with set, costumes, lighting and sound by Bourne’s most-trusted creative collaborators and a Prokofiev’s classic score performed live by the New Adventures Orchestra.

    Returning for their fourth visit to Sadler’s Wells, the world-renowned San Francisco Ballet (29 May – 8 June) continue to delight and surprise audiences with a mammoth programme of four triple bills, including eight brand new pieces which premiered earlier this year. These works have been created by choreographic royalty including Christopher Wheeldon, Liam Scarlett, Cathy Marston, Arthur Pita, Alexei Ratmansky and Justin Peck to name a few and range from works inspired by the music of Icelandic icon Björk to the life of Russian composer Shostakovich.

    Our stage has seen many spectacular set designs from being covered in two tonnes of soil for Pina Bausch’s The Rite of Spring to Antony Gormley’s 21 wooden boxes in Sutra. Damien Jalet and Kohei Nawa’s latest work Vessel (16 & 17 April), will see the stage flooded with water to reflect the near-naked bodies of the dancers with its mirror-like surface. In striking collaboration, the Olivier Award-winning choreographer and Japanese experimental sculptor blur the lines between human form and its environment.

    50 years on from the release of one of the best-selling albums of all-time, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Mark Morris Dance Group pay tribute to the experimental studio album that famously couldn’t be performed live. Pepperland (20 – 23 March) features Mark Morris’ witty and heartfelt choreography accompanied by new Pepper-inspired orchestrations performed by a live ensemble of voice, theremin, soprano sax, trombone, keyboards and percussion.

    In their follow up to the hugely successful She Said, Associate Company English National Ballet return with She Persisted (4 – 13 April); a triple bill celebrating and promoting women’s voices of dance. The company revives Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s biopic of Frida Khalo, Broken Wings and Pina Bausch’s Le Sacre du Printemps. Completing the trio is a brand new work by Stina Quagebeur, which takes inspiration from Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House.

  • Richard Alston Dance Company - Quartermark Play all

    1 & 2 March 2019

    As Richard Alston Dance Company enters its 25th year, the acclaimed company makes the first of its final two visits to Sadler’s Wells with a mixed programme featuring two new works and the revival of Proverb, one of Alston’s most telling pieces, set to the vocals of Steve Reich.

    Alston’s Brahms Hungarian uses the hugely popular Johannes Brahms music, as dancers are carried along by fast steps and an abandoned fervour, to live accompaniment from pianist Jason Ridgway.

    Detour, Martin Lawrance’s new work, is set to Michael Gordon’s pulsing Timber with the choreographer’s customary quick-paced style.
