Stuart do we know about booking in advance. Certainly the Sadler's Wells website doesn't have details up yet. From your experience, when does booking normally start?

Image <BR><small><I>Casa</I> Cia. de Dança Deborah Colker; photo: Flavio Colker</small><P><BR>PRESS RELEASE<P><BR><B>dance umbrella 2002</B> <P>10 September - 3 November<P><BR>Dance Umbrella, London's 24th international festival of contemporary dance, features the return of the man The Wall Street Journal has called "the world's greatest living choreographer", alongside a wide range of new work by acclaimed British and international choreographers in performances by some of the very best dance companies from around the world.<P>dance umbrella 2002 kicks off at the Barbican Centre with the return of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in two programmes including world and European premieres. The White Oak Dance Project makes a festival debut at Sadler's Wells featuring a Lucinda Childs solo for Mikhail Baryshnikov and, having made a festival debut in 1982, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's company Rosas opens a UK tour at Sadler's Wells, returning to pure dance after a series of pieces focusing on the link between text and movement.<P>Other festival highlights include the London premiere of Oyster from Israel's Inbal Pinto Dance Company at the UCL Bloomsbury theatre, the Dance Umbrella debut of Compagnia de Dança Deborah Colker with the European premiere of Casa at the Barbican and at The Place, Felix Ruckert's interactive dance piece Ring, that breaks the usual boundaries between performers and the audience. There are also festival debuts at the QEH for Ballet de Lorraine with a triple-bill of work from Mathilde Monnier and Jean-François Duroure, Karole Armitage and Merce Cunningham, and Frédéric Flamand's Belgian-based Charleroi Danses/Plan K returns to Dance Umbrella at the QEH with Metapolis Project 972.<P>There is a London premiere of Ballett Freiburg/Pretty Ugly's Bach tribute The Art of Fugue at the QEH, a welcome festival return at The Place for Spain's Mal Pelo and Yoshi Oida's powerful production of The Maids, featuring Ishmael Ivo and Koffi Koko in The Pit.<P>The British contingent features Dance Umbrella co-commissions for Siobhan Davies, Shobana Jayasingh, Charles Linehan and Richard Alston dance companies. Richard Alston's company performs a London premiere as part of its Sadler's Wells debut and unusually, both Siobhan Davies, at the Victoria Miro Gallery, and Shobana Jeyasingh, at Greenwich Borough Hall, are presenting new work in non-theatrical settings.<P>There are also festival returns for five Jerwood Choreography Award winners. Akram Khan performs a triple-bill at the QEH, whilst Fin Walker (Walker Dance), Charles Linehan and Yael Flexer (Bedlam Dance Company) present new work at The Place. Following the success of last year's Machine for Living Carol Brown presents a promenade piece, also at The Place.<P>" This year support from the Jerwood Foundation is making it possible for up to 500 people a night to see Baryshnikov's White Oak Dance Project, Richard Alston Dance Company with a London premiere, and Rosas with the UK premiere of Rain, for just £5 each at Sadler's Wells. Plus, immediately following the Merce Cunningham Dance Company world premiere season at The Barbican, the company moves to the London Contemporary Dance School at The Place for a week-long residency, our first with a major international company in London".<P>Val Bourne, Artistic Director<P>****************************************<P>All this plus Virtual Incarnations at the ICA and Dance on Screen at The Place.<P>dance umbrella 2002 centres around nine main venues: the Barbican Theatre, the Pit, UCL Bloomsbury, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, ICA, the Victoria Miro Gallery - new to Dance Umbrella, the Robin Howard Dance Theatre at The Place, Greenwich Dance Agency and Sadler's Wells.<P><BR>The Dance Umbrella enquiry line is 020 8741 5881 <P>Web-site <A HREF="http://www.danceumbrella.co.uk" TARGET=_blank>www.danceumbrella.co.uk</A> <P><B>dance umbrella 2002 is supported by Time Out.</B><BR> <BR> <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited August 07, 2002).]
