New Wave Associates

The purpose of the Sadler's Wells New Wave Associates programme is to invite young artists into Sadler's Wells and support them in a variety of ways at a key time in their careers. With practical production time in Sadler's Wells' studios and theatres, advice, and networking opportunities as well as financial support, the aim is to provide an artistic home while enabling them to contribute to the artistic programme with their energy and fresh ideas.

The programme is supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. The New Wave Associate Artists are:

Wilkie Branson, Hetain Patel and Alexander Whitley.

These artists are representative of the diversity of Sadler's Wells' artistic programme, both stylistically and in terms of countries of origin. The range of styles extends from contemporary to modern ballet, performance to hip hop, and conceptual to flamenco.
