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