Dance Summit Of International Artistic Directors

Artistic directors of dance companies around the world are gathering this week to talk about the state of the art. “Figures from the Bolshoi, the Royal Ballet and companies from Chile to Portugal are taking part in the think-tank to address how to develop new “classics” alongside the tried and tested favourites audiences always want to see. The three-day symposium will ask whether the companies are losing their individuality as they all perform the same Swan Lakes, Nutcrackers and Coppelias.”
