APRIL 2020'S STREAMING HIGHLIGHTS
English National Ballet - Akram Khan's Giselle
Available Saturday April 4th on Marquee TV
Hailed as a modern masterpiece, Akram Khan's multi-award winning Giselle is a classic story of love, betrayal and redemption reimagined for the 21st century. Khan sets his Giselle amongst a community of migrant workers - desperate and dispossessed. In stark contrast, Albrecht’s traditionally courtly world is replaced by a privileged group of landlords and factory owners. In this harsh setting, Khan and ENB artistic director Tamara Rojo, starring as Giselle, bring new depth and strength to this revered classic.

Batsheva Dance Company - Sadeh21
Available Saturday April 25th on Marquee TV
Sadeh21, danced by the Young Ensemble, is an ‘‘epic-dance expedition’’ and a “choreographic odyssey.” Watching these dancers is simultaneously mesmerizing and puzzling as they seamlessly move from balletic poses to animalistic ones - each contortion melting impeccably into the next. For creator Ohad Naharin, famous for his “Gaga” technique, this iis movement at its most raw. Stripped of all tricks and theatrical devices, this piece underscores the extraordinary emotional powers of dance.
