Draft Works 2015

Discover more about the choreographic process as Royal Ballet dancers explore and experiment with their choreographic ideas.

Most recent performance

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

Background

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

All the pieces are works in progress, created around the busy schedule of The Royal Ballet, and the dancers and choreographers give their free time and energy to the project – making Draft Works a unique opportunity to experience dance in its most elemental form.
