Event description

Description

DANSOX presents a guest lecture by Professor Lynn Garafola (Columbia University) who will discuss her work on Bronislawa Nijinska, one of the twentieth century's greatest modernist choreographers. Professor Garafola will explore Nijinska's position as Nijinsky's sister and her career in a male-dominated group of directors and choreographers associated with the Ballets Russes. She will also talk about the creation of iconic works of the Twenties including Les Noces, Les Biches, and Le Train Bleu, as well as less well-known pieces, and describe Nijinska's ventures inside and outside the Diaghilev circle.  The event is free and open to all and will be followed by a drinks reception in the JdP Foyer.
