San Francisco Ballet are one of the oldest ballet companies in America. Nearly 80 years on from being founded in 1933, they kick off the Sadler's Wells autumn season in style with three stunning programmes featuring works by some of the world's top choreographers.

Sadlers Wells this Autumn is the place to be for dance
A particular highlight of the visit will be Programme C which features Mark Morris' Beaux performed by nine male dancers, Yuri Possokhov's Classical Symphony set to Prokofiev's score of the same name, Possokhov's RAkU inspired by the burning of Kyoto's Golden Pavilion, and Christopher Wheeldon's Within the Golden Hour which is filled with luscious imagery. 
 
Over at the Peacock Theatre, ZooNation's highly praised and much-loved Some Like It Hip Hop gets ready to entertain London audiences once more before heading off on a UK tour. Directed by Kate Prince, Some Like It Hip Hop was an instant hit when it opened last year, prompting Olivier and Whatsonstage.com award nominations and huge critical acclaim.
 
Akram Khan’s latest work made its world premiere in 2011 to unanimous critical praise. His most personal work to date, DESH is a full length contemporary solo that has already been declared “a masterpiece” (The Observer) and won an Olivier Award for best new dance production. 
 
Meaning “homeland” in Bengali, DESH draws on multiple tales of land, nation and resistance, all converging in the body and voice of one man trying to find his balance in an unstable world. Moving between Britain and Bangladesh, Khan weaves threads of memory, experience and myth into a surreal world of surprising connection.
 
A collaboration of extraordinary proportions, Khan joined forces with visual artist Tim Yip (production designer for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), award-winning lighting designer Michael Hulls, writer and poet Karthika Nair, Olivier Award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook and slam poet PolarBear to create “the most urgent, beautiful and confident work of his career” (The Guardian).
