 “Dazzlingly fast-paced, humorous and sizzlingly hot-blooded” – Daily Express

 

Last seen in London in 2014, the international Cuban sensation Ballet Revolución returns to the Peacock for its fourth season. Having been seen by 850,000 people around the world since 2011, Ballet Revolución is ready to “deliver an endorphin high” (The Guardian) once again with its explosive mixture of ballet, street and contemporary dance. Ballet Revolución comes to Sadler’s Wells’ West End home, the Peacock as part of a world tour from Tuesday 5 - Saturday 23 May.

 

This exhilarating production features 19 dancers drawn from the most prestigious schools in Cuba, Escuela Nacional de Arte and Escuela Nacional de Ballet. Ballet Revolución returns with new costumes by Jorge Gonzalez, and new choreography by former lead dancer for Cher and original Tap Dog Aaron Cash and Cuban choreographer Roclan Gonzalez Chavez. Roclan Gonzalez Chavez said: “Cuban dancers move unlike any other dancers in the world… Dancing is pure passion, they speak through their bodies.”

 

Ballet Revolución will feature a new soundtrack of hits from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Adele, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, J Balvin and Calvin Harris to accompany this audience favourite production.

Notes to Editors

ABOUT SADLER’S WELLS

Sadler's Wells is a world-leading creative organisation dedicated to dance in all its forms. With over three centuries of theatrical heritage and a year-round programme of performances and learning activities, it is the place where artists come together to create dance, and where people of all backgrounds come to experience it – to take part, learn, experiment and be inspired.

 

Audiences of over half a million come to its London theatres each year, with many more enjoying its touring productions at venues across the UK and around the world, and accessing its content through digital channels.

 

Sadler's Wells commissions, produces and presents more new dance work than any other theatre in the world, embracing the popular and the unknown. Since 2005, it has helped to bring over 160 new dance works to the stage, many of them involving its 16 Associate Artists, three Resident Companies and four Associate Companies – the most exciting talents working in dance today.

 

It also nurtures the next generation of talent through research and development, running the National Youth Dance Company and a range of programmes including Wild Card, New Wave Associates, Open Art Surgery and Summer University. Sadler's Wells' learning and engagement activities reach over 25,000 annually through programmes that take dance out into the community and invite communities into the theatre. Projects include community productions and the renowned Company of Elders, its resident over-60s performance group, while events range from pre and post-show talks with dance artists to classes, workshops and assisted performances.

 

Located in Islington, north London, the current building is the sixth to have stood on site since entrepreneur Richard Sadler first established the theatre in 1683. The venue has played an illustrious role in the history of theatre ever since, with The Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and English National Opera having all started at Sadler's Wells.
