Bolero

 

A re-imagining of the 1960 ballet for Ravel’s Bolero where a dancer performs on a tabletop in a Spanish taverna - subverting the original choreography towards contemporary culture, female binge drinking and Geordie Shore role models.

DON'T FEED THE  GIRLS

 

Towards the definition of a lady in X acts.

The most powerful position is on your knees.
Big woman, big hair. 
Eating isn’t very Chanel. 
Smells like desperation. 
Mothers ruin. 
My vagina is tighter than yours. 
Elegance is refusal. 
Get laid, get screwed. 
This lady is not for turning. 
Necessary Evil.
