On location: Genée dancers take to London streets
This week the RAD is partnering with Harlequin Floors to bring top notch ballet talent to iconic locations in the heart of London.
An international transport hub and a lunch hour hotspot in London's financial district will play host this week to two 'pop up' events that celebrate the Genée International Ballet Competition 2015.
Both weekday commuters and weekend visitors will have a chance to see Genée semi-finalists in action. These events are free to attend:
- Friday 18 September, from 12pm - 2pm: over lunch in Broadgate Circle, right in the heart of the Square Mile
- Saturday 19 September, from 9am - 11am: under the dramatic roof of the new concourse at King's Cross Station, part of the bustling international King's Cross St. Pancras transport hub
These unique events are made possible through a partnership with Harlequin Floors which saw hundreds of commuters enjoy a bit of ballet on their way into work during the Genée in Antwerp in 2014.
And to start the weekend in style, join Scottish Ballet Artistic Director and CEO Christopher Hampson for brunch at the stunning Plum + Spilt Milk, taking place at the same time and under a minute's walk from the King's Cross event.
