Due to extraordinary public demand, additional UK dates have now been added to Sylvie Guillem’s international tour of Life in Progress, including these new dates at the London Coliseum.

Sadler’s Wells Artistic Director and CEO Alistair Spalding said: "When we announced Life in Progress as part of our spring programme last November, tickets for Sylvie’s final performances at Sadler’s Wells sold out within five days. Since then, we have seen an unprecedented demand for tickets not just in London, but throughout the country. We are so pleased now to be able to offer more opportunities for people to see her in London, Edinburgh and Birmingham. These additional dates reflect our ongoing commitment to providing access to as large an audience as possible to world-class dance, by touring productions around the UK as well as internationally."

After an unparalleled career that has spanned almost 35 years of both dancing ballet and contemporary work, Sylvie Guillem presents her final dance programme.

For this very special programme titled Life in Progress, she will dance two new works including technê, a solo with live musicians on stage, choreographed by Sacred Monsters creator Akram Khan. The second will be a duet entitled Here & After with Italian dancer Emanuela Montanari from La Scala, choreographed by Russell Maliphant who created the award-winning PUSH.

This last opportunity to see her dance on stage will also include Mats Ek's touching and poignant Bye which was made especially for her and performed as part of the 6000 miles away programme, and William Forsythe's Duo performed by Brigel Gjoka and Riley Watts.

"Every move Guillem makes is compelling. The superstar is still on top form"
