AUSTRIAN PREMIERE

 

Dance/Contemporary Ballet  Not many early Romantic works still find their way on stage today. How they remain relevant for subsequent generations is impressively tested by Akram Khan with his adaptation of Giselle. He shrewdly sets this narrative ballet in an abstract version of the present and probes the characters’ psychology with an assured touch. Famous for his multi-faceted, expressive style, the British choreographer with Bengali roots combines classical ballet with Indian Kathak dance, elements of industrial processes, court ceremonies and folk dances. In his work for English National Ballet, he succeeds in creating a parable about migration, globalization and power that does full justice to its reputation as a “masterpiece of 21st century dance” (The Mail on Sunday).
