ROSIE KAY’S FANTASIA

Available to watch online for four weeks from 7th Nov – 5th Dec 2020.

As we enter the extraordinary circumstances of Winter 2020, we have made our performance of Rosie Kay’s Fantasia available to watch online for four weeks. Experience something beautiful with Rosie Kay’s fine tuning of research in neuroscience in her choreography to bring unalloyed joy to the audience.

We share this recording for you to enjoy at home, but as these are extremely uncertain times for all artists, we would be very grateful for donations that we can use to support our dancers and creative team. 

 

 

 EXPERIENCE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

Three bold female dancers luxuriate in Kay’s signature style of athletic, visceral, raw and technical choreography underscored with a wicked humour.

Listed in the Guardian’s Top 10 Dance Shows of 2019, Rosie Kay’s Fantasia takes ballet and tutus into the 21st Century to create an exquisite performance of pleasure, beauty and finesse. Delve deeply into a soundtrack of Vivaldi, Purcell, Beethoven and Bach and revel in the vision of three bold female dancers as they explore love, loss, emotion and joy.

Available online for 4 weeks only, we invite you to experience something beautiful in Rosie Kay’s Fantasia, recorded at the Laban Theatre in 2019.
