The English National Ballet (ENB) recently teamed up with Sky, one of Europeâ€™s leading entertainment companies, to offer audiences a groundbreaking virtual reality piece inspired by choreographer Akram Khanâ€™s new production of Giselle.
Giselle VR, set to be released online sometime this month, features the world-class talents of ENBâ€™s Artistic Director and Lead Principal Tamara Rojo.
While itâ€™s only a two-minute piece, it will feature original choreography by Khan set to music by Vincenzo Lamagna and will see Rojo use the 360Âº space entirely, moving from left to right, forward and back.
