The north London dance house is the latest to announce its own Sadler's Wells Digital Stage, with an ambitious programme of new content that will include digital premieres of full-length dance performances, screendance – choreography designed for film – and new dance workshops, which have been specially created for families with young children, and the over-60s, to take part in at home.
The programmes will be available on Sadler's Wells Facebook page.
The full programme will be rolled out gradually, but for now we know it will kick off on Friday 27 March with the streaming of a performance of BalletBoyz’ latest double bill, Deluxe. See details and Culture Whisper’s full preview here.
Other stage performances to be streamed include the children’s work Rumpelstiltskin by BalletLORENT, which had been scheduled as part of Sadler’s Wells Easter programming focused on children. The streaming date is still to be announced – check the website.
Other performances will include a new version of Wilkie Branson’s dance for camera installation TOM, which would have formed part of Sadler’s Wells’ Digital Edition in April.
Sadler’s Wells will also stream dance films specially created for the screen. The series will include MADHEAD, a film directed by Ben Williams and choreographed by Botis Seva for National Youth Dance Company (pictured top).
Starting on Wednesday 1 April, an expanded version of Sadler’s Wells programme of workshops migrates online, and includes a family workshop featuring 10 different movement activities for children aged two to six to follow at home.
Their grandparents have not been forgotten: there will be workshops specifically for older generations, inspired by Sadler’s Wells Company of Elders, and led by a variety of international artists, including Clara Andermatt, Seeta Patel, Alessandra Seutin and New Adventures’ resident artist Paul Smethurst.
Full details of the programme will be announced gradually through the Sadler's Wells Digital Stage website.
