A couple of weeks ago I had the great pleasure of shooting world renowned choreographer Akram Khan for The Times at the Palace Theatre in Manchester commissioned by Portia Webb. I was fortunate to work with the lovely Jamieleigh Hargreaves of the Manchester International Arts Festival & equally lovely Robert James of the English National Ballet.
Akram Khan was hugely personable and easy going despite being just days away from the world premiere of his reinterpretation of the classicly romantic ballet Giselle.
A few days later I was delighted to be invited to the premier by the ENB. Akram Khan’s Giselle was out of this world. Absolutely stunning in every way possible. If I could watch it every day I don’t think |’d ever tire of it. The score by Vincenzo Lamagna was amazing.
It’s currently touring: Bristol Hippodrome (18-22 October 2016), the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton (26-29 October 2016) and Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London (15-19 November 2016).
