Alistair Spalding CBE
In January during the New York 2019 ISPA Congress, we had a great pleasure of having Alistair Spalding CBE, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells, join us as we celebrate together his receipt of the 2019 International Citation of Merit.

Alistair has led the organization for over 15 years, turning it into one of the world’s leading producers of contemporary dance. Sadler’s associate artists are among some of the the most critically acclaimed choreographers in the world, with Crystal Pite, Akram Khan and Wayne McGregor all on the roster. Likewise, the house has partnerships with the dance world’s leading companies like Rosas, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and English National Ballet.

In an interview with the International Arts Manager magazine, he tells how he maintains his motivation.

“I suppose a lot has happened and a lot keeps happening,” says Spalding, when I mention his longevity. “Each of our associate artists has kept moving forward in a strong way. That’s been a gift – they keep producing interesting work and developing, which inspires me to do the same.”
