Based on the original concept and choreography by Akram, Creature is the latest film from award-winning director Asif Kapadia. The film premiered on Saturday 15 October and became available in cinemas around the UK from Friday 24 February 2023.
Following English National Ballet’s 2021 stage production, Creature (film) is a collaboration between Akram Khan, Asif Kapadia, and English National Ballet, produced by Uzma Hasan of Little House Productions.
It tells the tragic tale of an outsider’s search for belonging, the insatiable desires of the powerful, and the enduring hope found in human connection and compassion. Inspired by Georg Büchner’s seminal play Woyzeck, this film sees ENB dancers Jeffrey Cirio, Erina Takahashi and Stina Quagebeur in leading roles.
