A New Venue for Sadler’s Wells

Sadler’s Wells just announced its plan to establish an additional, fourth performance space for cutting-edge contemporary dance in London as part of its 10-year plan. This vision is also backed by a commitment to invest £5 million in commissioning new dance works.

According to Alistair Spalding, Artistic Director and Chief Executive: “The public appetite for dance has never been greater. Sadler’s Wells aims to respond to this demand, and give the creative talent in this country an opportunity to develop for the future growth of the art form.

Sadler's WellsThe decision to develop a new space responds to the need for a 500-seat venue in London specifically designed to present new, mid-scale contemporary work, to be opened in London in 2018-19. Although many of Europe’s most important dance theatres are this size, London lacks such a space. A world-class venue for cutting-edge contemporary work would help confirm London’s position as a global centre for the art form.

Sadler’s Wells has established itself as a powerhouse for dance. The demand for dance continues to grow and yet London lacks a mid-scale space for contemporary work,” said David Bell, Chair of Sadler’s Wells. “This new venue will fill the gap between the main house and our studio space.”
