Modern contemporary dance and music performance space. Occupying a site with a long tradition of entertaining Londoners, Sadler's Wells exists to bring the best of national and international dance, ballet, opera and music theatre to the capital. Now a strikingly modern building with flexible performance and auditorium spaces, the original Sadler's Wells opened in 1683.
Embracing all dance forms, Carlos Acosta's new dance company performs at Sadler's Wells on their first China tour, with Acosta himself taking a starring cameo role. He will introduce Acosta Danza, the Havana-based dance company made up of the best dancers in Cuba, trained in both ballet and contemporary dance.
They perform new and existing pieces by Cuban choreographer Marianela Boan, Spanish dance-makers Jorge Crecis and Goyo Montero, New York City Ballet resident choreographer Justin Peck and Sadler's Wells own Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
