Choreography: Akram Khan
Pre-screening introduction with Lior Avitzur, head of the new dance school at Suzanne Dellal Center
Hailed as "a masterpiece of 21st century dance" from English National Ballet, Akram Khan’s Giselle comes to cinemas for the first time with Artistic Director of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, dancing the role of Giselle, one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory. Filmed live at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017, Akram Khan’s Giselle is directed for the screen by Ross McGibbon.
"Giselle has been transformed for the ENB by Akram Khan into the ballet event of the year. Staggeringly beautiful and utterly devastating, it is an electrifying triumph which any dance or theatre fan must not miss" The Daily Express
