Cheap TAO Dance Theatre: 6+7 tickets at the Sadler's Wells Theatre
A double bill of two pieces call "6 and 7".
This is the continuation of a series that has been presented by SW in the LBS starting with "2" and "Weight x3" in 2011 and "4" and "5" in Spring 2014.
There are 6 and then 7 dancers in each respective piece.
TAO Dance Theater performs a brand new double bill as part of Dance Umbrella, returning to Sadler's Wells following sell out shows in the LBS. Formed in 2008 by Beijing based choreographer Tao Ye, TAO Dance Theatre is knwon for its collaborations across art forms including film and visual art, creating dances that have a mersmeric, trance like quality. In 6+7, he continues his numbered series of experimentations that explore the potential of the human body as a purely visual form, free from the constraints of story- telling or representation.
In 6, his dancers move in dynamic and hypnotising unison, in a shifting landscape of light created by Swedish lighting designer Ellen Ruge. His latest work 7 continues Tao's fascination with pattern, precision and ritual and is distinguished by a soundtrack of acoustic effects generated by seven dancers' own bodies. Both 6+7 will be accompanied by specially commissioned music from Chinese Indie Folk composer Xiao He.

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:

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.
