    Akram Khan Company - Creature Tickets

    Akram Khan's masterful ballet, inspired by Woyzeck and Frankenstein, returns to London for a second season.

    Akram Khan’s unearthly, uncanny ballet

    Olivier Award-winning choreographer Akram Khan’s masterful Creature returns to London for a thrilling second season, performed by the English National Ballet. This gothic tale of science and humanity is an unmissable event on the dance calendar.

    In a derelict research station, the Creature is part of a new military experiment. This remote and desolate Arctic outpost is a testing ground for his mental and physical ability to adapt to isolation, extreme cold and homesickness - the cornerstones of mankind’s plans to colonise the final frontiers of Earth and beyond.

    Inspired by Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Creature at Sadler’s Wells is a bold tale of exploitation and human ambition pushed to the brink. This haunting production features Khan’s trademark blend of Indian kathak and contemporary dance alongside the world-class English National Ballet. Khan and ENB have previously collaborated for a powerful, acclaimed reimagining of Giselle.

    Creature is designed by Academy Award winner Tim Yip, with music by Vincenzo Lamagna, lighting by Michael Hulls and additional story input by dramaturg Ruth Little. English National Ballet Philharmonic perform the evocative and atmospheric score live.

    This compelling dance piece is a must-see in London; book Creature tickets now to experience it live.
