With “dancing full of pain and power” (The Independent), a pounding soundtrack by Jocelyn Pook and atmospheric lighting, Akram Khan’s Dust grabs you from the start and does not let go.
Dust was created in 2014 as part of Lest We Forget, a programme commemorating the centenary of the First World War and reflecting on the experiences of those who fought in the conflict, and those who stayed behind.
English National Ballet performed Dust on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival in 2014.
Cast includes Fabian Reimair, Tamara Rojo and James Streeter.
This performance of Dust was recorded at the Milton Keynes Theatre in October 2015 for archive purposes.
