CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021 though we have some hope for some panto ....


Renowned for its soul-stirring high energy performances, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of America's greatest companies. Taking popular music, gospel and jazz and mixing the classical vocabulary of ballet with a contemporary style, the Company of 30 dancers radiate a slick and sassy energy that is purely infectious. The world-famous and world-class dance company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, returns to Sadler's Wells for the first time since 2010 with an exhilarating showcase of dance. Celebrating nearly 60 years of unparalleled artistry, Ailey's trademark technical brilliance and passionate energy bring audiences everywhere to their feet every night. Aszure Barton's exhilarating new work LIFT celebrates and challenges the dancers with its markedly intricate rhythmic patterns and mercurial structure. Driven by the dancers' passion, skill and collective power, the work was created over a developmental process with the entire Company. Following this is Awakening. Choreographer Robert Battle uses his taut, ritualistic style to powerful effect in a dance that expertly balances chaos and resolution, dissonance and harmony. His first new work since becoming artistic director in 2011, the piece is set to a symphonic score by frequent collaborator John Mackey. Next, audiences will experience Cry: Alvin Ailey's signature solo. Originally choreographed as a birthday present for his mother, Ailey then created the dance for his muse, Judith Jamison. Concluding the evening is Ailey's legendary Revelations - the most seen modern dance work in the world. More than just a popular dance work, it has become a cultural treasure, beloved by generations of fans.
