This incredible partnership sees English National Ballet and World Dance Champions Flawless in an exciting new show fusing streetdance, acrobatics and ballet. Following their performance at Peace One Day at the O2 last year, the members of Flawless including artistic director and lead choreographer Marlon “Swoosh” Wallen and Jenna Lee, soloist and choreographer at English National Ballet, collaborate again to generate dance fireworks.
The story of Against Time follows the battle between the students of The Academy of Excellence and an evil time manipulator who plans to bring an end to dance for ever by stopping time. Four of the students discover his journal and realise they have to intervene and sabotage his plans before it’s too late. In a race against time, the heroes go head to head with their arch enemy to uncover the mystery and solve the puzzle.
Against Time takes the audience on a thrilling journey during which the boys from Flawless and the ballerinas from English National Ballet showcase all that is extraordinary about dance.
Against Time is a co-production between English National Ballet and World Dance Management and has been created by Flawless and Jenna Lee.
