Sadler's Wells Touring Productions


"The Wells has kept pace with the widening parameters of the art form, launching festivals of hip hop, flamenco and Indian dance. Significantly, too, it has recast itself as a producing house, brokering inventive collaborations such as Sutra, in which Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Antony Gormley joined forces with the Shaolin monks on a journey through myth and martial arts; or PUSH, in which the spectacularly contrasted talents of Sylvie Guillem and Russell Maliphant achieve a rare, burnished chemistry"

As well as bringing the very best international and UK dance to London audiences, we have an impressive portfolio of our own productions that tour throughout the world. In the last year alone, Sadler's Wells has presented 140 performances of 12 productions in 51 international cities to audiences of over 130,000.

Since 2005, Sadler's Wells has produced 25 new shows, in collaboration with our Associate Artists, other dance companies and international partners, many of which have received international awards. These include PUSH with Sylvie Guillem and Russell Maliphant, Sutra with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Antony Gormley, and The Letter with Jonzi D, as well as our Cuban dance show Havana Rakatan and the British Bollywood musical Wah! Wah! Girls. Sadler's Wells Productions have toured across the globe from New York to Abu Dhabi, Paris to Sydney, Moscow to Mexico City, and Birmingham to Tokyo.

Sadler's Wells producing and touring programme ensures we can play a dynamic role in the development of dance, and bring innovative and inspiring productions to audiences across the world.

"If you could pick up a dance piece, turn it inside out and look at the label, the words 'Made at Sadler's Wells' would be a guarantee of quality. Since 2005, the north London theatre has been a hotbed of dance creativity, commissioning and supporting some of the world's finest choreographers to make work.

Eight years later, those residing outside London can finally see what they've been up to. This is thanks, largely, to the man who turned Sadler's Wells into a theatre that produced work (rather than just showed it) shortly after coming into post in 2004: chief executive and artistic director, Alistair Spalding"
