Akram Khan's Giselle is heading to Liverpool Empire Theatre

WINNER of the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance, Akram Khan's Giselle comes to Liverpool for the 1st time, with performances at the Liverpool Empire Theatre, over 25 October to 28 October 2017, following a critically acclaimed run in London.

Hailed as:- "a masterpiece of 21st century dance," Khan's reimagining of the iconic Romantic ballet sees Giselle as 1 of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory. Last season over 40,000 people saw Akram Khan's re-imagined Giselle performed on tour.

His 1st full length ballet, Khan's Giselle sees set and costume designs from Academy Award winning designer Tim Yip, known for his work on the hit film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and an adaptation of the original Adolphe Adam score by composer Vincenzo Lamagna, orchestrated by Music Director, Gavin Sutherland and performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. Giselle also features dramaturgy from Ruth Little and lighting design from Mark Henderson.

To coincide with these performances English National Ballet presents Giselle Explored, a series of collaborative dance workshops that offer secondary school, college, and vocational students the opportunity to creatively engage with Khan's reimagined Giselle, delving deeper into the work and both the creative and production process. Teachers also receive a comprehensive resource pack to encourage further dance and creative work with their students beyond the workshop. To find out about Giselle Explored and other workshops and events hosted by English National Ballet in Liverpool, please see:- Ballet.Org.UK/Whats-On.
