English National Ballet invites five company members to take the choreographic lead for a showcase that places emerging talent centre stage. Charged with devising new work in response to the Great War, the aspiring choreographers collaborate with five composers to develop original music that begins with a song and evolves into an accompanying score.
Under the direction of Associate Artist George Williamson, the event also provides a platform from which young dancers shine, including the current winner of English National Ballet School’s Choreographic Competition.
English National Ballet’s second programme marking the centenary of the First World War at the Barbican follows Lest We Forget.
Approx 2 hours/including interval
Also 2.30pm on 24 May
