Starting with an overview and the highlights in the evolution of dance – from Greek drama and Aristophanes to Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and Keith Haring's dancing figures – this new workshop invites you to explore the intersection of the visual arts and dance, creating a different art piece each time, inspired by a dance-themed artwork.
August is dedicated to Parade, the extraordinary ballet that premiered in 1917 in Paris, performed by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Inspired by a publicity parade in which circus artists try to attract an audience to an indoor performance, it was an astounding, radical piece, which became associated with the emergence of the Surrealist movement.
Picking our favorite characters and using cardboard, fabric and paints, we’ll create costume items and produce our very own Parade.
