In rehearsals: Cesar Corrales (Hilarion) vs. Isaac Hernández (Albrecht)
The full English National Ballet company of dancers is involved in the creation of Giselle, working and rehearsing with Akram Khan.
“I’m working with these very technically strong, classically trained dancers from the ballet world… what’s interesting is that my dance vocabulary looks different. I’m trying to retain the essence of it, but I’m also trying to emphasize the strength of the ballet body.”
Akram Khan, Choreographer
