Ten years since The Royal Danish Ballet’s last visit to Sadler’s Wells, principals and soloists from this internationally renowned company perform a program featuring excerpts from works by August Bournonville, the acclaimed 19th century Royal Danish Ballet choreographer and ballet master who created more than fifty works for the company.

The essence of the Bournonville style lies in its joy of life, rhythm, harmony and easy elegance which will be showcased in excerpts from his ballets such as La Sylphide, Napoli, A Folktale, and Conservatory. As a choreographer, Bournonville believed that beauty is forever modern and with ballet companies still performing his ballets today, 136 years after his death, it proves that his sense of beauty is still very much alive.

Experience this rare opportunity to see dancers from one of the world’s leading ballet companies in their unique Danish style.

Date: 9 - 10 January 2015
Tickets: £18 - £48
Venue: Peacock Theatre, Kingsway (entrance on Portugal Street), London WC2A 2HT

Pilobolus Dance Theatre: Shadowland

Pilobolus Dance Theater will bring their internationally acclaimed hit show SHADOWLAND to the UK, premiering at Sadler’s Wells’ Peacock Theatre from 11 – 30 March 2014.

Created by Pilobolus in the wake of their seminal performance at the 79th Academy Awards in 2007, and the first theatrical event of its kind to tour the globe, SHADOWLAND combines shadow theatre, dance, circus and music, using dynamic screens to create a performance that merges projected images and front-of screen choreography.

Pilobolus’s unique shadow dance work has inspired many other companies and productions around the world, including the winners of Britain’s Got Talent 2013.

Created in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for popular animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, and set to an original score by acclaimed American musician, producer and film composer David Poe, SHADOWLAND has been seen by almost one million people worldwide.

By turns, dramatic, comedic, erotic and surreal, SHADOWLAND portrays a teenage girl’s coming of age, as her longing for independence takes her down into her dream-world – The Shadowland. Unable to escape, the girl sets off on a journey of discovery. She meets a series of strange creatures along her way, at once comic and evil, threatening and seductive; mad chefs try to cook her in a soup, hunch-hand monsters threaten to crush her, a giant hand transforms her into a dog, before a powerful centaur finds a way into the dog-girl’s heart… and bed.

SHADOWLAND celebrates the strange transformative power of the dark to show us who and what we are in unexpected and thrilling ways.

Date: 11-30 March 2014
Tickets £15-£40
Venue: Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, London WC2A 2HT

The Snowman

Enjoy a magical live version of this classic winter tale at the Peacock Theatre in London.

 

Now in its 16th year at the popular dance venue, the Birmingham Repertory Theatre production of The Snowman never fails to instill a sense of joy and festive spirit in its audience. 

 

Based on the book by Raymond Briggs, The Snowman is the story of a young boy whose snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve. Together they set off on a magical adventure, on which they encounter dancing penguins, reindeer and even Father Christmas. After escaping the icy clutches of the evil Jack Frost, they finally arrive back home – just in time for Christmas morning.

 

Fans of the animated film cannot fail to be moved by the performance of "Walking in the Air" by a live band, which is played as James and the Snowman fly through the night sky.

 

This enduringly popular show is the perfect festive treat for all the family.

 

Date: 27 November 2013 - 5 January 2014

Tickets: From £12.00
