English National Ballet is inviting audiences to join them for Wednesday Watch Parties, featuring full-length recordings of their performances on Facebook and YouTube, over the next month. Recordings will be available for 48 hours.

The first Party at 7PM on Wednesday 22 April will feature Broken Wings, a ballet based on the life of 20th century artist Frida Kahlo choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and featuring ENB Artistic Director Tamara Rojo as Kahlo alongside Irek Mukhamedov as Diego Rivera. The performance was recorded at Sadler’s Wells in 2016 as part of ENB’s first triple bill dedicated to female choreography, She Said.

The second on 29 April will be Dust by Akram Khan, recorded at Milton Keynes Theatre in October 2015 as part of ENB’s reflection on World War One, Lest We Forget, featuring Tamara Rojo dancing alongside First Soloist James Streeter.
