Read Around: RITUALIA
Tuesday 11 Dec 2018
A feminist landmark, we've created a reading and watch list for Les Noces (1923), from choreographer Bronislava Nijinska and Diaghilvel's Ballet Russes before we bring Colette Sadler's RITUALIA back to stages in Spring. So settle down with a cup of tea, put your feet up, and get ready to explore a world of modernism.
- Here's a wee introduction:
- Bronislava Nijinska: A Choreographer's Journey. Delivered by Lynn Garafola, professor of dance, Barnard College, Columbia University at The National Gallery of Art (Washington), 2013.
- Library of Congress Collection - browse over 200 objects relating to Bronislava Nijinska.
