Second Breath: ENB One Off Night At IWMN
 

A ONE-OFF performance by English National Ballet will be performed at IWM North, part of Imperial War Museums, to mark the First World War Centenary.

It is an opportunity to view this acclaimed ballet performance surrounded by the context of objects from IWM’s collections, such as the field gun that fired the British Army’s first shot of the First World War

It takes place on Saturday 17 May and has been specially created by award-winning, internationally acclaimed British choreographer Russell Maliphant.

The 20 minute performance is part of a packed evening that will include live music by Vintage 78 DJs; object handling; and live poetry performances with readings of works by Dylan Thomas and Wilfred Owen. Owen's original manuscript poems are on display in the museum.

IWM has been commissioning artists to create responses to conflict since the First World War. Now, to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, IWM North in Manchester is delivering a major season of new high-quality artworks and live performances called Reactions14.
