Theatre: Bluffing Your Way In Ballet

July 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Fresh from its sell-out run at the Alma Theatre (Bristol) and The Mission Theatre, Bath Fringe 2023!

Beyond the tutu! Bluffing Your Way In Ballet pirouettes its fast-paced and irreverent way through the history of this most dynamic of performing arts, with stories and dances from the ballet greats including Isadora Duncan, Anna Pavlova, Vaslav Nijinsky, Marie Rambert – and Darcey Bussell!

Youll be in safe hands! Producer Alexandra Pickford danced with The Royal Ballet Company and English National Ballet and has danced with some of these great stars. She is delighted to share her knowledge and experiences with you!

The fabulous Seizing The Day Company will perform – in avant-garde fashion – the intrigue, tragedy, and magic of ballet’s greatest stars, past and present:

* Flamboyant Louis XIV of France who helped create the five positions of the feet  essential to todays ballet performances
* Impossibly athletic Vaslav Nijinsky  those unbelievable leaps!
* Perfect dance partners Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev
* Passionate Dame Darcey Bussell showcasing ballet and dance to new and larger audiences in Strictly
* And more!

” a brilliant night of theatre”. Jessica Campbell, Senior Producer, Bristol Old Vic
” moments of absurdity, beauty and true pathos”. Edson Burton MBE

So whether you’ve seen us before or you’re fresh to the dance floor, come along and tell us what you think before we head on to the Edinburgh Fringe 2024!

Recommended age 16+ – the show contains adult themes and the occasional use of strong language but is mostly just good fun
