Book Circle

Wednesday September 2nd

The EAC Book Circle meet on the first Wednesday of each month to discuss a particular book.   The book for September is The Fortnight in September by R.C.Sherriff.

Written two years after Journey’s End, it shares its emphasis on real people leading real lives. But the atmosphere could not be more different, embodying as it does the kind of mundane normality the men in the dug-out longed for – domestic life at 22 Corunna Road in Dulwich, the train journey via Clapham Junction to the south coast, the two weeks living in lodgings and going to the beach every day.  This was what the First World War soldiers longed for; this, he imagined, was what he was fighting for and would return to (as in fact Sherriff did).

Entry is free and new members will be most welcome.

Starts 1:30pm

Akram Khan's Giselle

English National Ballet on screen

Saturday 26th September

In this acclaimed version by Akram Khan, the greatest Romantic ballet and its story of love, betrayal and redemption are reimagined.

As the curtain rises, dancers in shadow push against a large wall. From that moment on, Akram Khan’s Giselle stuns with powerful images and mesmerising choreography.

The “ominous, gothic” score (The Observer) by Vincenzo Lamagna is adapted from Adolphe Adam’s original, and performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

Sets and costumes by Academy Award-winning designer Tim Yip and atmospheric lighting design by Mark Henderson conjure up a condemned factory and the vengeful ghosts that appear in its shadows.

Since its premiere in 2016, Akram Khan’s Giselle has resonated with audiences around the world, from Manchester to Moscow.

Stars Tamaro Rojo, James Streeter, Jeffrey Cirio and Stina Quagebeur
