Rosie Kay’s Fantasia

Fantasia. A composition that breaks all the rules

Rosie Kay’s newest work takes ballet and tutus into the 21st Century using dance and science to create an exquisite performance of pleasure, beauty and finesse.

Fine-tuning choreography with neurological research, Kay questions what it is that makes dance beautiful to watch and experience.

Delve deeply into a soundtrack of Vivaldi, Purcell, Beethoven and Bach and revel in the vision of three bold female dancers as they discover love, loss, emotion and joy.

Birmingham Hippodrome Associate Rosie Kay worked with neuroscientists in the UK and Denmark’s Center for Music in the Brain to explore how dance can trigger sensations of pleasure and fulfilment in the brain. Fantasia is the result of her desire to make a work of pure joy inspired by music and the body’s response to it.

With truly sumptuous costumes that defy expectation, join us on a journey of music, delight and fantasy.
