I wanted to give the girls a bit more of a context for the work we have been doing in our lessons so I decided to use one of our sessions to explain a bit more about the history of contemporary dance and show them the work of some influential choreographers, past and present.
Below are a list of links to the videos we watched as well as the names of the choreographers we chatted about.
Traditional Ballet Swan Lake by le ballet de l’Opéra de Paris
A modern version of Swan Lake with an all male swan cast by Matthew Bourne
Lamentations by Martha Graham
Accumulation by Trisha Brown
The Cost of Living by DV8 Physical Theatre Company
