DANCE: EVENT OF THE WEEK: Rambert Dance Company Mon-Sat Sadler's Wells

It seems only yesterday that Sadler's Wells was a pile of rubble, but next Monday, after two years of road works, the new theatre will be stopping the traffic for a different reason when it reopens with a season of dance by Rambert.

It'll be the sixth theatre on the site and Finsbury is now a chi-chi community. The new Wells will be more than equal to the task, with its modern auditorium, plate-glass walls and the remains of an exciting programme (25 weeks of the season vanished overnight, thanks to the legendary forward-planning skills of the Royal Opera). The missing weeks have yet to be rescheduled, but autumn and winter look strong. Rambert are followed by the Royal Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet and Pina Bausch - its first London visit for 17 years.

Rambert Dance Company, Sadler's Wells, Rosebery Avenue, London EC1 (0171-863 8000) 12-17 Oct
