Please note this information reflects the rescheduled dates of these performances. The original dates were cancelled when we announced the closure of our theatres to reduce the spread of coronavirus. The programme has not changed from its original version.

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.

This performance contains flashing lights, loud music, haze effects, themes of suicide and death, and depictions of sexual violence and abuse.

Creature is a Co-Production between English National Ballet and Opera Ballet Vlaanderen (OBV). Co-producers; Sadler’s Wells, London. Production Partner: The Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater
