This past weekend, a new ballet called Tree of Codes debuted at the Manchester International Festival, a project that features a score of work by The xx member and solo producer Jamie xx.

The ballet, inspired by the Jonathan Safran Foer novel of the same name, opened on July 3 to rave reviews by critics and adoring fans alike. The crew from Jamie xx’s label, Young Turks, were front and center on opening night, and shared a candid video and insider details about the ballet on Instagram.


Stage designer Olafur Eliasson also shared behind the scenes moments from opening night.
