Sylvie Guillem and Russell Maliphant’s dance show Push is to return to the London Coliseum later this year.

The work, which is a Sadler’s Wells production and has been announced as part of the north London venue’s 2014 season, will open on July 29 and runs until August 3.

It premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 2005 and has previously run at the London Coliseum, in 2008. It stars former Royal Ballet principal guest artist Guillem and choreographer Maliphant.

At Sadler’s Wells, the previously announced Torobak, choreographed and performed by Akram Khan and Israel Galvan, will receive its UK premiere from November 3 to 8.

This is followed by Jasmin Vardimon Company’s revival of Park, which runs from Monday 10 to 11 in a re-worked version with new 3D imaging.

The world premiere of four works by choreographers Wayne McGregor, Karole Armitage, Alexander Whitley and Crystal Pite set to music composed and conducted by Thomas Ades will run from October 30 to November 1.

Matthew Bourne’s Lord of the Flies will run from October 8 to 11 and a new piece by Rambert dance company artistic director Mark Baldwin and South African singing group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, called Inala, will run from September 17 to 20.

Meanwhile, a series of performances celebrating Nordic dance culture will also be staged at Sadler’s Wells and off-site from September.

The Northern Light Season will include the Royal Swedish Ballet’s performance of Mats Ek’s Juliet and Romeo, Norwegian company Zero Visibility Corp’s show It’s Only a Rehearsal, and a piece by Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen at Central St Martins’ Platform Theatre.
