Renowned choreographer Akram Khan returns to Sadler’s Wells with a full-length production for English National Ballet.
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.

Image description: A solo dancer appears as an uncanny creature, lit from the side in bright blue. He faces us, trapped inside a thick translucent material with a swirling texture, like ice, and looking off to one side. The dancer balances on his right leg, his other knee drawn up to waist height, toes pointed. His left hand presses against the glassy surface which glows in pink and orange.
