From Here To Eternity
What a total disappointment having attended 22/02/14 matinee.
Summing up, the show was as dull as the lighting.The music was either background to shouting dialogue to advance the plot and the few songs were readily forgettable.The updated approach to a sensitive subject was made to be vulgar and un-entertaining F'ing dialogue worse than a macho sports event.The lighting throughout was as dull as the overall performance and considering the Hawaiien setting it would have been more understanding to have lighting indicating sunshine.The performers all appeared to be working hard to make the best of poor material and they are not the failures

I pondered whether my daughter was too young to enjoy this show (she is 7), but I am so pleased I took the risk.

Click here to book tickets for Lest We Forget
A poignant reflection on World War I, Lest We Forget features three works expressing the experiences of those who fought the war, and those who stayed behind.
Drawing on superb design and evocative scores, Liam Scarlett, Russell Maliphant and Akram Khan, three of the most sought-after choreographers working today, have created dance works full of unforgettable and haunting images.
Liam Scarlett’s No Man’s Land evokes the entwined destinies of the women working in munition factories at home and the men fighting in the trenches, through emotional pas de deux set to a score by Liszt.
Twenty dancers tilt and sway in semi-darkness, rising and falling, in Second Breath, a “devastatingly effective” (Daily Telegraph) piece by Russell Maliphant set to recordings of survivors and live orchestra.
With “dancing full of pain and power” (Independent), a pounding soundtrack and atmospheric lighting, Akram Khan’s Dust grabs you from the start and does not let go.
