Saw my first ever ballet performance this weekend (Lest We Forget @Sadlers_Wells) & it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

Lest We Forget is the most beautifully powerful ballet I have ever seen. Akram Khan, totally jaw dropping, heart wrenching choreography pal!

@ENBallet company on great form and the commissioning was inspired. Seeing them dance Akram Khan was something. A great and vital evening.

On 29 June 2014, we performed Akram Khan’s Dust on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury – a landmark moment in our history, and that of the iconic festival. Here are some of the reactions from audiences in the field and in front of their TV.
Watching ENB at Glastonbury. A ballet called "Dust".
