Welcome to BAM!
We’re so happy that you could join us for our incredible spring season.

These engagements truly epitomize our commitment to bringing adventurous artists, audiences, and ideas together in meaningful and unforgettable ways. It’s a common thread woven throughout this entire season, which connects minds and hearts through dance, theater, visual art, music, programs for young audiences, literary talks, and more.

Every day we see how crucial the arts are to processing and reflecting the world around us, and in turn, how art impacts that world. Shared cultural experiences are more important than ever. When you join us for these incredible experiences, you become an integral part of a community that seeks out and supports visionary artists, and in the process, fosters a global awareness.

As we move forward in our mission, we are excited to welcome back Gina Duncan who returns to BAM as its next president in April. We are overjoyed to begin this new chapter guided by her inspiring vision. The interim presidency has been an enriching experience in so many ways for all of us. During this time, together with a remarkable staff, BAM conceived unique ways to safely return to live performance and reopen its spaces, as well as continue its commitment to present as many of the artists as possible who were postponed due to the pandemic.

Thank you for sharing this extraordinary performance with us and for all that you do to make moments like this possible.

Act I

Giselle is one of a community of migrant garment factory workers (the Outcasts). Dispossessed of their jobs by the factory’s closure, and separated by a high wall from their hopes of livelihood and security, the Outcasts function as little more than exotic entertainment for the factory Landlords. In Act I, the wealthy Albrecht disguises himself as an Outcast in order to visit his lover Giselle. But his presence is noted by Hilarion – Giselle’s would-be lover – a shapechanging ‘fixer’ who trades with and mimics the Landlords for his own and his community’s profit.

Albrecht’s wooing of Giselle is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of the Landlords. Seeing his fiancée Bathilde among them, Albrecht tries to hide. Giselle recognizes the fine dress worn by Bathilde as the product of her own factory labour. The Outcasts dance for the Landlords until Albrecht and Hilarion disturb the Ceremony with their conflict. Bathilde’s father confronts Albrecht, forcing him to return to Bathilde and to their world. When he submits and returns to Bathilde, Giselle is driven mad with grief. The Landlord gives a command, and the Outcasts encircle Giselle. When the crowd disperses, her lifeless body is revealed. Denying any responsibility, the Landlords retreat beneath the Wall.


Act II

A wrecked, abandoned ‘ghost’ factory is revealed – a place where Giselle and her female co-workers have laboured, and many have died. Here Albrecht, grieving for Giselle, confronts and condemns the Landlords.

Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis (ghosts of factory workers who seek revenge for the wrongs done to them in life), enters, driving Albrecht away. She summons Giselle from her lifeless body into the realm of death, to join the company of the remorseless Wilis.

Hilarion enters to mourn at Giselle’s grave. The Wilis surround him, demanding retribution for Giselle’s death, and Hilarion is brutally killed.

Albrecht returns and becomes aware of Giselle’s presence. The lovers are reunited on the threshold between life and death. Breaking the cycle of violence – and defying Myrtha’s command – Giselle forgives Albrecht and releases him into life.

The Wilis depart with Giselle, and Albrecht, now an outcast from his own community, is left alone by the Wall.
A Word from Tamara Rojo
Welcome to this performance by English National Ballet at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in the beautiful Howard Gilman Opera House.

I am delighted that we are able to bring Akram Khan’s Giselle to BAM for its first staging in New York City. It is truly special for English National Ballet to tour to New York for the first time in over thirty years, and especially so in returning here to BAM, which was one of the venues the Company (at that time named London’s Festival Ballet) visited in 1955 as part of its first North American tour.

Since the production’s world premiere in 2016, Akram Khan’s Giselle has been seen by over 330,000 people in theatres, cinemas, on DVD, television and streaming services. Internationally, we have performed Giselle in Auckland, Dublin, Hong Kong, Chicago and Luxembourg to name just a few, with future performances in Paris and Austria.

This is a production of which the whole Company is immensely proud. We continue to be overwhelmed by the outpouring of appreciation that we have received from audiences around the globe who connect with its sheer emotional power and with the themes that resonate so strongly today.

I am thankful to the extraordinary Akram Khan, and to the entire creative team: Tim Yip, Vincenzo Lamagna, Gavin Sutherland, Ruth Little, Mark Henderson, Andrej Petrovič, Mavin Khoo, and Yvonne Gilbert.

It is a pleasure to be able to share this production with you. On behalf of everyone at English National Ballet, I would like to thank you for coming to see us here at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and for making our return to New York City so special.

The Violence of Inequality: On Reimagining Giselle
Akram Khan’s Giselle is a work of memory and testimony; a revision of the classic narrative ballet through the lens of globalisation and its imbalances of wealth, power and labour. It takes the narrative structure of the 19th century original - a Romantic tale of love, betrayal and forgiveness – and adapts it to the circumstances of a community of migrant workers (the ‘peasants’ of the original version). The setting of the classical Giselle is medieval Germany; Khan’s is an abstract version of our own times, transparent to the economic cycles of the past. The impulse to renew the story of Giselle is rooted in the precarious situation of migrants and refugees everywhere today – the marginalisation of people seeking security in places increasingly inaccessible to them behind literal and metaphorical walls.

Khan’s revision of the story draws a connection between Manchester, centre of the global textile industry in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and Bangladesh, birthplace of Khan’s parents and a key location, for now, of the factories and beneficiaries of the contemporary global garment assembly industry. The ebb of the economic tide in late 18th century Bengal which shifted wealth and power to the burgeoning cotton industry of Manchester, leaving the city of Dhaka in ruins, was followed by the collapse of the British industry in the mid-20th century, and the subsequent flow of capital and investment back to Dhaka in the 1980s. In both countries, economic forces have at various times thrust up and withdrawn from industrial complexes, leaving dilapidated spaces haunted by histories of human labour: ‘The ideology of economic reason has hitherto largely omitted the costs to society of its majestic progression through the world.’¹ This ‘majestic progression’ leads, among other externalities, to mass human movement as capital inhabits and then abandons its sites of cheap labour, propelling the migration of workers from rural areas to cities and across national borders in search of livelihoods and security. Over four million people now work in around 5,500 garment factories and sweatshops in Bangladesh (80 – 90% of them women), but their jobs and futures are no more secure than the price of their labour, and they too may one day join the growing numbers of stateless exiles discounted by wealthier nations as ‘economic migrants’ and chided for their aspirations.

Khan’s Giselle, like the original, occupies two distinct realms of life and death. But it is also a realm of memory, in which echoes of former lives and journeys are woven into the present. In Act I, Giselle, a former garment factory worker, exiled with her community from work and from her homeland, seeks entrance to the place where the factory landlords live in luxury, their borders protected by a high wall. Giselle is in love with Albrecht, a member of this wealthy class who disguises himself as an outcast to woo her. But she is loved, too, by Hilarion, an outcast with the spirit of the fox or trickster – a ‘fixer’ adept at crossing the boundary between rich and poor in search of advantage. Hilarion brokers the relationship between his own community and that of the visiting landlords, among them Albrecht’s fiancée Bathilde, in whose fine dress Giselle recognizes her own handiwork. When exposed by Hilarion as an impostor and confronted with the choice between his life of privilege and the precarity of the Outcasts’ existence, Albrecht returns to Bathilde, betraying Giselle and abandoning the secret fruit of their love. Lost on the border between two violently unequal worlds, Giselle’s fate is sealed as the Landlords retreat to safety and seclusion.

Act II takes place not in the ballet blanc otherworldly glade of the original, but behind the Wall, in a broken-down ‘ghost’ factory, one of globalisation’s proliferating mausoleums. Here the female migrant workers of Act I have laboured, and too many have died, victims not of betrayal in love, but of industrial accidents caused by greed, neglect or exhaustion. The ghost factory is haunted by the memory of the women (the Wilis) who have passed through its doors and never returned. In this condemned space the Wilis seek revenge upon those who have injured them. The bamboo canes carried by the Wilis are both weapons and remnants of a pre-industrial past. They refer to the structure of the hand loom and early weaving machines, and to traditions of skilled craftsmanship before the advent of factory piece work. Giselle is a newcomer in this world, still intimate with the life and the love she has so recently lost. Her desire to break the cycle of violence which ends Hilarion’s life leads to her reconciliation with Albrecht and his release from the retributive justice of the Wilis. He returns, now an outcast himself, to the borderland beyond the Wall.

The original ballet, too, is present as a memory trace in elements of classical movement vocabulary and fragments which refer to the choreography of Coralli and Perrot. It is present in the narrative structure, which remains close to the libretto by Gautier and St Georges, and in haunting melodic motifs drawn from Adolphe Adam’s original score by composer Vincenzo Lamagna. Lamagna layers classical instrumentation and abstract industrial resonances into a complex current of sound; a work of constant interweaving, like the ballet itself. Over many months of research and rehearsal, Khan, the dancers and the creative team drew on the rich resource of English National Ballet’s Giselle in Mary Skeaping’s iconic version, as well as on a vast reservoir of contemporary and archival images, sounds and movement forms associated with industrial processes, Kathak dance tradition, courtly ceremony, folk dance, animal movement and human migration. Out of these materials a movement vocabulary was developed and adapted to the circumstances of the narrative and its context, including the monumental nature and dynamic potential of the set. The production evolved through a process of accretion, pattern-creation and disruption, and the layering and interweaving of motifs and metaphors. The ancestral Giselle haunts this new version, which honours its enduring legacy and the mythic quality of its story, while allowing contemporary issues and forces – economic, physical and social – to transform it into a testament of our troubled times.

Akram Khan’s Giselle is a work of rituals and cycles, suffused with the memory of movement, the violence of inequality, and the resilience, capability and desires of the human body.

Artistic Director
English National Ballet
Performing the role of Giselle

Tamara Rojo was appointed Artistic Director of English National Ballet in 2012.

Tamara trained in Madrid. She won a Gold Medal at the Paris International Dance Competition and a Special Jury Award unanimously given by a judging panel led by Natalia Makarova, Vladimir Vasiliev and Galina Samsova, who asked her to join Scottish Ballet.

Within six months of joining English National Ballet, Tamara was promoted to Principal, and went on to dance the full range of the Company’s principal roles. Derek Deane created the roles of Juliet (Romeo & Juliet) and Clara (The Nutcracker) for her. Her performances as Clara broke all box office records at the London Coliseum and The Times named her “Dance Revelation of the Year”.

Tamara joined The Royal Ballet as a Principal at the invitation of Sir Anthony Dowell shortly after her highly acclaimed Guest Artist debut with the Company in Sir Peter Wright’s Giselle, and danced there for 12 years.

Tamara has been repeatedly recognised for her artistic excellence. Her awards include the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production; Spain’s three highest Honours: The Prince of Asturias Award, the Gold Medal of Fine Arts and Encomienda de Número de Isabel la Católica; the Benois de la Danse Award; Critics’ Circle National Dance Award; Barclay’s Outstanding Achievement in Dance Award; Positano Dance Award; Leonide Massine Premio al Valore; the Italian Critic’s Award; and from the City of Madrid, both the International Medal of the Arts and the Interpretation Award.

She is a member of the Board of the Creative Industries Federation, the Anglo-Spanish Society, a Patron of the Ipswich-based DanceEast Academy, Patron of the Flamingo Chicks and Adviser to Spain’s Superior Council of Artistic Studies.

In January 2016 Tamara Rojo became D.A. Magna Cum Laude, presenting her thesis ‘Psychological Profile of the Elite Dancer – Vocational Characteristics of the Professional Dancer’ at Rey Juan Carlos University, and was awarded a CBE for her services to ballet in the Queen’s 2016 New Year’s Honours.

Akram Khan
Choreography and Direction

Akram Khan is one of the most celebrated and respected dance artists today. In the last 20 years he has created a body of work that has contributed significantly to the arts in the UK and abroad. His reputation has been built on the success of imaginative, highly accessible and relevant productions such as Outwitting the Devil, XENOS, Until the Lions, Kaash, iTMOi (in the mind of igor), DESH, Vertical Road, Gnosis and zero degrees.

As an instinctive and natural collaborator, Khan's choreography is the embodiment of shared exploration across multiple disciplines and cultures. His previous collaborators include the National Ballet of China, actress Juliette Binoche, ballerina Sylvie Guillem, choreographers/dancers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Israel Galván, singer Kylie Minogue and indie rock band Florence and the Machine, visual artists Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley and Tim Yip, writer Hanif Kureishi and composers Steve Reich, Nitin Sawhney, Jocelyn Pook and Ben Frost.

Khan’s work is recognised as being profoundly moving, in which his intelligently crafted storytelling is effortlessly intimate and epic. Described by the Financial Times as an artist “who speaks tremendously of tremendous things”, a highlight of his career was the creation of a section of the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony that was received with unanimous acclaim.

As a choreographer, Khan has developed a close collaboration with English National Ballet and its Artistic Director Tamara Rojo. He created the short piece Dust, part of the Lest We Forget programme, which led to an invitation to create his own critically acclaimed version of the iconic romantic ballet Giselle. In recent years, Khan has moved into television, specifically documentaries. He has created 3 documentaries with Swan Films for Channel 4, the Sky Arts documentary series Why Do We Dance, and an episode of the Netflix series MOVE.

Khan has been the recipient of numerous awards throughout his career including two Laurence Olivier Awards, the Bessie Award (New York Dance and Performance Award), the prestigious ISPA (International Society for the Performing Arts) Distinguished Artist Award, the Fred and Adele Astaire Award, the Herald Archangel Award at the Edinburgh International Festival, the South Bank Sky Arts Award and nine Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards. Khan was awarded an MBE for services to dance in 2005. He is also an Honorary Graduate of University of London as well as Roehampton and De Montfort Universities, and an Honorary Fellow of Trinity Laban. Khan is also the Sky Arts Ambassador for Dance. Khan is an Associate Artist of Sadler’s Wells, and Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, London and Curve, Leicester.
