Body of Work

The Dance of Art (2011)

From Chagall’s windows to Leonardo da Vinci’s hands to the temples of the ancient Greeks to the photographs of Ansel Adams to the mobiles of Alexander Calder, the choreographers have selected a wide ranging group of artists and art forms to use as inspiration for their pieces.
