UK premieres for new Sadler’s season

First Published 10 May 2013, Last Updated 10 May 2013

Sadler’s Wells’ autumn season will see a deluge of premieres hit the Islington dance venue’s stage later this year, with Sadler’s Wells regulars Wayne McGregor Random Dance, Rambert Dance Company, Hofesh Shechter and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui all returning with new works.

Wayne McGregor Random Dance’s Atomos and a new mixed bill by Rambert Dance Company will receive their world premieres at Sadler’s Wells in October. The newest work by contemporary choreographer McGregor, Atomos (9 to 12 October) features a cast of 10 dancers and is inspired by the structure and form of an atom, while Rambert’s mixed bill (22 to 26 October) will see former Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet Ashley Page return to the venue with a striking new work set to music by Aphex Twin and award-winning composer Marc Anthony Turnage.

Following the success of Political Mother, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Shechter will return to the acclaimed venue to present the UK premiere of his latest work Sun (30 October to 3 November), a production featuring the choreographer’s own music, which will be closely followed by the UK premiere of m¡longa (6 to 10 November), a new piece by Cherkaoui – who returns following this season’s Puz/zle and Sutra – that draws upon the sexuality, power and beauty of the tango.

The autumn season will also welcome the UK premieres of a new triple bill by Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet (27 and 28 September), a mixed bill by newly founded company LA Dance Project (2 to 4 October), a new British-Chinese collaboration from Edwaard Liang, Russell Maliphant and Christopher Wheeldon, Stuttgart Ballet’s The Taming Of The Shrew and Made In Germany (18 to 23 November), and two mixed bills by Mark Morris Dance Group (27 November to 1 December).

While premieres will dominate the Sadler’s Wells stage this autumn, the Peacock theatre will see the welcome return of festive favourite The Snowman from 27 November to 5 January, the arrival of Neader’s BLAM!, a show described as “an imaginary game where ordinary life is put through the shredder”, which comes to London from 22 October to 16 November following its UK premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as well as two productions by British Youth Opera (1 to 14 September) and Jasmin Vardimon Company’s Justitia (17 to 22 September).

Also returning following its critically acclaimed productions of Into The Hoods and Some Like It Hip Hop, ZooNation will take to the Sadler’s Wells stage from 24 to 25 September with Unplugged, an evening of live acoustic music and breathtaking dance that explores the relationship between musician and dancer.
