Renowned choreographer Akram Khan returns to Sadler’s Wells with a full-length production for English National Ballet to follow the success of Giselle in 2019.

Creature is an unearthly tale of exploitation and human frontiers inspired by Georg Büchner’s expressionist classic Woyzeck, with shadows of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Drawing on themes of abandonment, isolation and the fragility of the mind, Creature is the tale of an outsider and the search for belonging.

★★★★★ "Staggeringly beautiful and utterly devastating"
