Book Company Wayne McGregor: Autobiography Tickets

For 25 years, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Wayne McGregor has made choreography that interrogates life through the experience of the body.

Now McGregor turns his attention to the body as archive, with a dance portrait illuminated by the sequencing of his own genome. In a continuous reimagining, Autobiography is reinvented at each performance, assembled from a collection of choreographic volumes which unfold uniquely every time.

Wayne McGregor is joined by an impressive set of collaborators: electronic musician and producer Jlin, designer Ben Cullen-Williams, lighting designer Lucy Carter, artist and designer Aitor Throup and dramaturg Uzma Hameed.

Sadler's Wells is the home of contemporary dance productions in London. Since the inception of the company in 1683 there have been six theatres on the Rosebery Avenue site, with the current building opening in 1998. The shell of the 1931 theatre, designed by Frank Matcham, was kept intact during the renovations. A smaller, 180-seat studio theatre (the Lilian Baylis Studio) was also built in the renovation to accommodate workshops of new works, as well as smaller productions for younger audiences. Sir Matthew Bourne's all-male Swan Lake premiered here in 1995 on the main stage before going on to international success.


The auditorium has three levels - Stalls, First Circle and Second Circle. Being a relatively modern theatre the sightlines from most seats are very good, with no pillars obstructing views. In the Stalls, the view from seats in Rows N-S may be slightly obstructed by the overhang of the First Circle, but this varies from production to production. In the First Circle, the view from seats in Rows L-M may be partially impaired by the overhang of the Second Circle. The Second Circle may feel a little removed from the action, and the view from the side seats in the front 4 rows is slightly impaired due to the seats being set at an angle.
