  1. On right now, Darcey Bussell, Yasmine Naghdi and Charlotte MacMillan, interviewed by Kristen McNally, discuss Kenneth MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet, followed by an audience question and answer session.
  2. jmhopton, There seemed to be problems with that link, here is the one I use now. https://www.tvguide.co.uk/mobile/search.asp?title=ballet it doesn't go as far ahead as the other link but it does seem to cover a lot of channels. Search and enjoy.

  7. Shobana Jeyasingh Dance with Material Men redux on Monday 20 July at 7pm (for a week I think). A work powerfully rooted in the Asian experience of indentured labour whereby millions of the poor from the subcontinent were transported to work in colonial plantations when slavery was abolished. It is performed by two charismatic dancers who bring their own personal connection to the story, a story told through archive text and images as well the brilliant dance skills of Sooraj Subramaniam (Bharatha Natyam) and Shailesh Bahoran (Hip hop). Shobana will also chat with Guardian Dance Writer Sanjoy Roy about the work, and answer your questions online.
  8. I was listening to Megan Fairchild In conversation with Wendy Whelan about Albert Evans. Megan remarked that fish don't know they are in water until you tell them, I thought how my thinking and understanding of black dance issues have moved a bit since the BlackLivesMatter demonstrations. One of the things I have been doing is watching a lot of Black companies while the opportunity is here. When I went back to watching a usual company it seemed to lack something and it brought home to me how White ballet is and that we need diversity in dance. Wendy also said that Albert had been very good at making people feel comfortable around him, and I thought of all the extra work BAME people have to do around White people. These are good personal challenges for me.
  9. Shobana Jeyasingh Dance from 7pm today on facebook, I will aim to post a link. Don't forget we're broadcasting the next of our SJD SHORTS this evening (Monday) at 7pm (UK) featuring Outlander & Études. Both works were inspired by incredible art, and performed within a gallery setting. Afterwards Shobana will be chatting about the works with Guardian Dance Writer Sanjoy Roy, and will answer your questions online. ★★★★★ “…the choreography embodies the connection between sculpture and drawing” The Independent
