Nov 11 at 7:30 PM - English National Ballet: Akram Khan’s Giselle at the Harris Theater

from 40.00

British Bangladeshi choreographer Akram Khan, known for masterful works that interweave contemporary dance and Indian kathak, creates a 21st-centuryGiselle. This classical ballet is reimagined in a stunning new version that illustrates the woes of migrant workers and powerful factory owners. Following an applauded second run at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London, the English National Ballet will bring this groundbreaking work to Chicago’s Harris Theater for Music and Dance in 2019 for its American premiere. At the only New York preview of this critically acclaimed ballet, Khan’s first work featuring dancers on pointe, New York Times dance writer Marina Harss moderates a discussion with Khan, Tamara Rojo, artistic director and lead principal dancer of English National Ballet, Patricia Barretto, president and CEO of Harris Theater for Music and Dance, and company dancers. Highlights will be performed by three company dancers and Rojo.
