"Jocelyn Pook’s new score is perfectly in tune with the dance, her beautiful melodies astride a train of thrilling percussion."
To commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War, English National Ballet revives their “moving and ambitious” (The Independent) triptych Lest We Forget at Sadlers Wells from 20-29 September. Featuring three poignant works, Lest We Forget reflects on the experiences of those who fought in the conflict, and those who stayed behind. The third – Dust – is directed by Akram Khan and features a score by Jocelyn Pook performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.
"The women whirr and stamp, following the beat in Jocelyn Pook’s impressive score...True to its title – it stays with you long after curtain-down"
