by Cindy Sibilsky - Jun 12, 2022

Akram Khan's Giselle leaves one speechless, breathless and gasping for air.

It must be witnessed and allowed to wash over you, sink beneath the surface, and enter your soul. Giselle is the art that wakes up the dead parts inside of you and kindles them back to life again.
