About English National Ballet

Winner of The South Bank Sky Arts Award 2015, Lest We Forget is a poignant reflection on World War I, featuring three works expressing the experiences of those who fought the war, and those who stayed behind.

Drawing on superb design and evocative scores, Liam Scarlett, Russell Maliphant and Akram Khan, three of the most sought-after choreographers working today, have created dance works full of unforgettable and haunting images for Sadler's Wells Associate Company English National Ballet.

Liam Scarlett’s No Man’s Land evokes the entwined destinies of the women working in munition factories at home and the men fighting in the trenches, through an emotional pas de deux set to a score by Liszt.

20 dancers tilt and sway in semi-darkness, rising and falling, in Second Breath, a “devastatingly effective” (Daily Telegraph) piece by Russell Maliphant set to recordings of survivors and a live orchestra.

With “dancing full of pain and power” (The Independent), a pounding soundtrack and atmospheric lighting, Akram Khan’s Dust grabs you from the start and does not let go. Dust won Best Modern Choreography 2014 Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards.
