Watch Party: Fantastic Beings

13 — 15 May
35 minutes

Join us for our fourth Wednesday Watch Party, on 13 May at 7pm BST: we’ll be watching Aszure Barton’s Fantastic Beings on Facebook and YouTube.

In this inventive work, twenty dancers become “all manner of slinky, sensual creatures” (Evening Standard) and move to Mason Bates’s Anthology of Fantastic Zoology, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic

Take a trip to a fun and surreal world and enjoy “a feast for the senses” (The Daily Express). Watch the trailer.

Originally created for our She Said programme in 2016, and reworked in 2018.

Recorded at Sadler’s Wells in 2018, as part of our Voices of America mixed bill.
