Cheap les ballets C de la B - Alain Platel's tauberbach tickets at the Sadler's Wells Theatre
The critically acclaimed contemporary ensemble les ballets C de la B return to Sadler’s Wells with Alain Platel's new creation tauberbach. In this project, Platel continues previous research into the development of movement material that he describes as “bastard dance”, which has also been explored in pitié!, Out of Context – for Pina and C(H)OEURS (2012).
This new creation was initiated by actress Elsie de Brauw, who asked Platel to make a performance using both dancers and actors. The starting point is Marco Prado's documentary Estamira, telling the story of a woman who suffers from schizophrenia and who lives and works in a Brazilian waste disposal site. She has developed her own very particular way of communicating with the small community she lives in, giving rise to the theme of the piece: how to live or even survive with dignity under nearly impossible circumstances.
Inspiration is also drawn from Artur Zmijewski’s ‘Tauber Bach’ (Bach music sung by deaf people) and Mozart arias, which will be performed live.

Sadler's Wells Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Sadler's Wells above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
Sadler's Wells is situated on Rosebery Avenue in Islington, close to Angel tube station. Originally constructed in 1683, Sadler’s Wells was completely rebuilt several times prior to its current incarnation as a 1560 seat venue.
It's been a music hall and a cinema, and was restored as a theatre in the early 20th century.
Today, Sadler’s Wells enjoys consistent success and is known as both a producing and receiving house (a theatre that hosts productions it hasn’t originated itself). It presents theatre, dance and contemporary music performances.
Like any long-serving institution, it’s experienced its fair share of changes over the years. With the exception of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the site on which Sadler’s Wells stands is the longest established continuous place of entertainment in the United Kingdom. An entertainment venue has occupied its site since the 1683 construction of the Musick House. That old wooden venue was demolished in 1765 to make room for a new brick theatre, which was opened in April of that year.
In 1772 the interior of the theatre was reconstructed. Ten years later the theatre was demolished completely and rebuilt on the same site. In 1879 the interior of the theatre was remodelled once more, with only the exterior walls remaining.
After a number of different managers during the 20th century the theatre became run down and closed in in 1915. It reopened in 1931, and the Sadler’s Wells Ballet School and the Vic-Wells Ballet Schools were established. Sadler’s Wells closed during WWII and did not reopen again until 1945.
The current theatre opened in 1998. The new design provided a larger stage, allowing larger companies and performances in the theatre.
Recent successes include Zero Degrees, Push, Rambert Dance Company, Matthew Bourne’s Early Adventures and Matthew Bourne’s A Play Without Words.
Whatever you decide to see at Sadler’s Wells, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
