Kinder Aggugini – English National Ballet in Residence at Tate Britain
Duveen Galleries 27 February — 4 March 2012
The fashion designer Kinder Aggugini has been commissioned by the English National Ballet to create the costumes for the ‚The Rite of Spring‘. We follow behind the scenes of the ballet to take an exclusive look at the new costumes.
English National Ballet brings Tate Britain’s Picasso & Modern British Art exhibition to life with ballet classes, participatory workshops, rehearsals, performances and the opportunity to draw from life. Inspired by Picasso’s visionary costume and set design work with the Ballets Russes, this collaboration offers a rare insight into how English National Ballet rehearses repertoire and creates new work with a free week-long programme.
The artistic culmination of the residency will be three ballets commissioned by English National Ballet especially for Picasso & Modern British Art, premiered in the Duveen Galleries during Late at Tate Britain: Picasso on Friday 2 March 2012.
