Well Seasoned Sadler’s Wells celebrates work by Black dance artists in 2022
Well Seasoned is an initiative designed to platform work by both UK-based and international Black artists. These performances, and our digital programme, represent some of the most exciting work from Black choreographers, dancers, and Artists of Colour.
Drawing from international work, the incredible cultural melting pot of London, and reflecting the African diaspora, Sadler’s Wells invites you to join the celebration. Look out for special Well Seasoned events, talks, exhibitions, additional digital content including performances, podcasts and online documentaries later in the Spring.

Celebrating Black Dance
Exploring Black Dance with Well Seasoned
Introduction by Sir Alistair Spalding, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells
During the pandemic Sadler’s Wells has been reflecting hard on how we can redouble our efforts to celebrate Black dance talent, and more widely work from Artists of Colour – and continue to bring a real diversity of work to our stages. We will continue to appeal and delight the widest audience, from all communities, as the world resets after the turbulent events of the last two years.
Well Seasoned on Digital Stage: In Conversation with...
People can expect to see great digital work featuring Black artists and Black culture. There will be an offer of exciting work from artists or work that is deep routed in Black culture, as well as brand-new commissions, Guest Selects and a Podcast series, featuring artists that we have long-standing relationships with, as well as the opportunity to build new artistic relationships.
