Draft Works

Dancers from within the ranks of The Royal Ballet create and perform experimental new works.

Most recent performance

There are currently no scheduled performances of Draft Works. It was last on stage 24–26 February 2015 as part of the Winter 2014/15 season.

Background

Royal Ballet and guest dancers perform choreography still in the making by their dancer peers and guest choreographers, without lighting or costumes. Draft Works, curated by Wayne McGregor, is a flexible platform for short ideas or longer choreographic essays.

All the pieces in the evening are created around the busy schedule of The Royal Ballet and the dancers and choreographers give their free time and energy to the project. This is a unique opportunity to experience dance in its most elemental form.
