NOW IS ALL THERE IS - BODIES IN MOTION, Dancers of the Royal Ballet present a Photogtraphic Exibition at the Gallery at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden, 25 January 10am - 4pm; 26 and 27 January 10am - 6pm. Entry is free. BroadwayWorld has a first look below.
Now Is All There is Bodies in Motion is an exhibition of 34 stylized images of Royal Ballet dancers taken by photographer Rick Guest. Celebrating the physicality and expression ofthe dancers' bodies, this exhibition captures them in a different light away from the Royal Opera House and uniquely styled by Olivia Pomp.
This series of black and white photographs is the fusion of three art form s: photography, fashion and dance. These im ages were taken over the last two years and illustrate key disciplines of ballet technique - balance and poise - but with a strong fashion edge that is both evocative and playful.
The Royal Ballet dancers photographed for this project include Lauren Cuthbertson, Melissa Hamilton, Marianela Nunez, Nehemiah Kish, Steven M Rae, Thiago Soares, Johannes Stepanek, Eric Underwood, Edward Watson and Zenaida Yanowsky.
Each image is float-mounted and framed in American oak to form a dramatic installation. All art pieces are a limited edition of six and will be for sale.
