ADFAS: The Ballet Russes

  • Passchendale Room, Tamworth Town Hall Fitzroy Street Tamworth, NSW, 2340 Australia (map)

In 1909, a group of Russian dancers, choreographers, composers and painters burst upon the jaded dance scene in Paris, appearing at the Theatre de Chatelet before a delighted and ecstatic audience.

Diaghilev, the Director of the Ballet Russes believed in a total theatre concept and with a bevy of talented artists he galvanised and changed history in not just dance but in music, scenic design and choreography. Pavlova, Nijinsky, Fokine, Bakst and Stravinsky became world famous and over the period of 20 years artists such as Picasso, Cocteau and Satie collaborated in an unprecedented experiment of total theatre which continued to influence and inspire.

Presented by Robin Haig in the  Passchendaele Room, Tamworth War Memorial Town Hall.
