Lest We Forget Theatre Tickets

Lest We Forget

A poignant reflection on World War I, Lest We Forget features 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.

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 emotional pas de deux set to a score by Liszt.

Twenty 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 live orchestra.

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