Sadler’s Wells, the home of international dance in the capital, welcomes this compelling reflection on the First World War as the English National Ballet’s Lest We Forget plays at the Islington venue.

It is now a century since the Great War gripped Europe and changed the shape of the world for the century to come. As such, Lest We Forget will provide three pieces of work that will delve into the experiences of those that had to face the conflict first hand. Liam Scarlett’s No Man’s Land is one of them, followed by Russell Maliphant’s Second Breath and Akram Khan’s Dust.

No Man’s Land focuses on the women in the factories back home and the men fighting in the trenches. Second Breath, meanwhile, features dancers performing to the sounds of an orchestra and recordings of those who survived the war. Finally, Dust provides a powerful and gripping ending.

The show is a wonderful performance of dance at a venue that regularly welcomes some international talents. Sadler’s Wells often features new and classic shows, whilst also offering more at its West End outlet known as the Peacock Theatre.

In a year that also brings Matthew Bourne’s The Car Man to the venue, Lest We Forget, featuring No Man’s Land, Second Breath and Dust, runs at Sadler’s Wells in Islington, North London, from Tuesday 8th September 2015.
