Sadler’s Wells announces A/W 2017 season

Sadler’s Wells’ new season features a world first for artistic research

Tickets are on sale to members from Wednesday 17 May at 10am for Sadler’s Wells’ Autumn / Winter 2017 season, which features a host of new shows by the theatre’s Associate Artists and companies produced or co-produced by Sadler’s Wells, including a highly personal new production by Wayne McGregor that, in a world first for dance and the arts, has genetic sequencing at the heart of its choreographic research. Public booking opens Monday 22 May at 10am.

These productions include a total of five world premieres by Wayne McGregor and BalletBoyz, a UK premiere by Hofesh Shechter and the much-anticipated UK premiere of International Associate Company Acosta Danza. Audiences will also have another chance to see work by Jasmin Vardimon, along with award-winning productions by Matthew Bourne (performed by Resident Company New Adventures), Michael Keegan-Dolan, and Akram Khan (performed by Associate Company English National Ballet). Khan also curates the dance programme of the Darbar Festival, which Sadler’s Wells hosts this year for the first time.

Alongside works by established artists, the Autumn / Winter 2017 season introduces three distinguished dance-makers to Sadler’s Wells for the first time; Shobana Jeyasingh, Meg Stuart and Kyle Abraham.

Other seasonal highlights include Birmingham based Rosie Kay’s award-winning choreographic representation of her time spent with the 4th Battalion The Rifles,  5 SOLDIERS: The Body is the Frontline.

As part of the London-wide annual Dance Umbrella festival, three acclaimed choreographers; Lucinda Childs,  Anne Teresa and Maguy Marin, each create inimitable dance works to the same piece of music, Beethoven’s Grande Fugue op. 133.

And this Christmas marks 20 consecutive years of The Snowman enchanting young audiences at The Peacock, with a magical mix of exquisite dancing and live music – including Howard Blake’s much-loved Walking in the Air.
