GCSE Dance trip
Year 11 Dance students enjoyed a fabulous trip to Sadler’s Wells this week to see Akram Khan’s production of the ballet Giselle.
Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan’s reimagination of the archetypal Romantic ballet is fast earning a reputation as a modern masterpiece. Plucking the innocent Giselle from her village, Khan’s version sees the action moved to a condemned garment factory, where a community of migrant workers serve at the mercy of the factory’s landlords. The ghostly figures of their victims form a vengeful and awe-inspiring cabal within Academy Award-winning Tim Yip’s towering set.
