Journey back to the origins of ballet in The King Dances, and glimpse the kindling of its future when David Bintley reimagines ballet’s first searing steps, taken by King Louis XIV of France as he danced the role of the sun god.

In his new work for the company, Juanjo Arqués draws inspiration from Turner’s The Burning of the House of Lords and Commons in a ballet that looks at contemporary political conflict.
