Quarantine at Sadler’s Wells

Posted on September 26, 2011

Quarantine return to Sadler’s Wells from September 27 to October 1 with new work Entitled, which portrays the usually hidden process of transforming a theatre from an empty space into a stage for a show, and back again. Artistic director, Richard Gregory says: “Entitled puts three theatre technicians centre stage and invites us into their world.  Its performers – including a dancer who’s finding her voice, a guitarist who used to be a dancer and a writer who wants to dance – step aside from their rehearsal to tell us what’s really going on in their lives.”

Entitled performers include Greg Akehurst, Chris Whitwood, Lisa Mattocks, Fiona Wright, dancer Jo Fong and musician John Kilroy. The creative team includes Richard Gregory (Director), Simon Banham (Designer), Sonia Hughes (Writer), Jane Mason (Choreographer), Mike Brookes (Lighting), Dr. Michael Brady (Philosopher) and Swen Steinhauser (Dramaturge).

Entitled is a co-production with the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, commissioned by the Royal Exchange Theatre, Sadler’s Wells and Leicester Curve Theatre. It will be performed in the Lilian Baylis Studio. Tickets cost £15 and are available from the Sadler’s Wells box office on 0844 412 4300 or at
