FEDORA Ballet Short List for 2020

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what this is about??  It's a terrible website in that you are supposed to be able to vote for something, but what exactly isn't clear.  It gives lots of snapshots of arts (ballet, opera, music) projects in different European countries, many of which look interesting (including  co-collaboration between the RB and ABT on a new full length Wheeldon work based on the novel 'Like Water for Chocolate').  Are we supposed to vote for which project should get funding for full development??  In which case, not sure why the Wheeldon would be being considered as compared to some of the very small companies/theatres described.  Any clarification gratefully received!!!

Well it seems to be a sort of philanthropic/crowdfunding 'competition' - see https://www.fedora-platform.com/competition/prizes but it does seem strange (to me) for a potential new RB/ABT work (and some other big companies here too) to be publicly floated in this way. I wasn't aware that this was a (potential) fundraising method they would use. I haven't investigated the voting procedure yet!

Last year’s awards write up gives lots more info. KOH was on last year’s jury and ENB Creature was a nominee. What does this mean for timing of wheeldon’s proposed ‘Like Water for Chocolate’? Next Spring?
