The Jerwood Studio at Sadler's Wells launched in 2006 as a unique professional research programme supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. There are two practical, professional strands at the heart of the programme - Cross Art Form Projects and Sadler's Wells Summer University, and one public strand - the body:language talks.
Cross Art Form Projects programme offers artists time to explore ideas with new collaborators at the very start of the creative process. The goal is to provide time and space to test drive ideas before any performance dates are in the calendar, and is specifically aimed at work destined for large stages and spaces. In recent years 75% of these projects have gone on to be produced, programmed or commissioned by Sadler's Wells.
Body:language talks take place in the Lilian Baylis Studio at Sadler's Wells each autumn, and focus on the wider frame of artists' careers, rather than a particular production. Seven of the talks from 2008 - 2011 have been led by dramaturge and academic Guy Cools, and have been published as annotated and illustrated pamphlets by Sadler's Wells. These are available to buy from Sadler's Wells online shop.
