Since their main 1500 seat theatre opened in Islington in 1998, Sadler’s Wells has become a household name, synonymous with contemporary dance and supporting the arts community. As well as presenting a fantastic programme of dance throughout the year, they also commission and produce original work, touring these productions across the globe.
Such an organisation boasts a rich history and in the traditional spirit of pushing the boundaries, Sadler’s Wells produced No Body: “A fully immersive multi-installation experience that combines all the elements of a successful dance performance – lighting design, sound and projection, but without the physical presence of dancers”. http://www.sadlerswells.com/whats-on/2016
Working with Adam Carrée – Production Manager Sadler’s Wells, Nick Hillel – Creative Director Yeast Culture and Andy Coates – Video Programmer and Engineer, Blue-i Theatre Technology provided technical support for the project to include over twenty high specification Panasonic projectors across their range, media server content hosting and networking.
Ed Cooper, project manager overseeing the project at Blue-i says of the event:
“It was great working with Adam Carrée and Nick Hillel. Their creative ambition for this project was high from the off, and with such an extensive fleet of projection and server equipment we were delighted to be able to help realise the potential of this outstanding installation.”
The audience were taken through spaces and backstage areas that they might otherwise not have access to, where they experienced thought provoking installations such as “Indelible” with specially commissioned music by renowned composer Nitin Sawhney and visuals from Yeast Culture’s Nick Hillel.

The installation was met with wide spread applause and critical acclaim.
