Peacock is Sadler’s Wells’s satellite venue designed to appeal to a West End punter. As such, you can expect the programme to lean towards populist dance theatre from the likes of fluoro/UV dance company Momix and Miguel Angel Zotto’s Tango por Dos. Just don’t wander in while the sun is still up: by night, the Peacock auditorium may play host to dance spectaculars, but by day the space becomes a lecture hall for the London School of Economics who owns the building.
