Southbank Centre Announces New Commissions & Premieres

    Today, the Southbank Centre announced an Autumn/Winter 2023/24 Performance and Dance season featuring new commissions and premieres from innovative and influential artists worldwide. The programme signals a renewed commitment to Performance and Dance under Artistic Director Mark Ball, who joined the UK’s leading multi-arts centre in January 2022, and Aaron Wright, who was appointed Head of Performance and Dance in April 2023.

    The season showcases fresh additions, with a prominent highlight being the entire Queen Elizabeth Hall site’s exclusive transformation, orchestrated by Marina Abramović and the Marina Abramović Institute (MAI). Additionally, (LA) HORDE makes a significant debut in London by introducing the UK to their production, “Roommates.” Their comprehensive program incorporates six diverse performances, melding various contemporary choreographic styles.

    Talking about the announcement Mark Ball, artistic director of the Southbank Centre, stated “The Southbank Centre has for decades been one of London’s great venues for performance and dance. I’m delighted we’re making a renewed commitment to again being at the centre of live performance in the capital by commissioning and presenting some of the world’s most influential and exciting artists and performance makers. This is a boldly international programme that speaks to the future of how performance is being made, melding together dance, music and live art to offer unique experiences for audiences.”
