12 Star Gallery
32 Smith Square,
This photographic exhibition, displayed in the 12 Star Gallery at Europe House, celebrates the creativity and cultural diversity that is the hallmark of the European Union, and marks the rich cultural exchange between the UK, Europe and the rest of the world during a significant time of change in the UK’s relationship with its neighbours and highlights the importance of international cultural exchange to the health of the dance sector.From some of the UK’s most renowned dance companies to freelance dance artists across all genres of the artform, the significant influence of international artists is an integral part of the UK’s cultural fabric. Amongst them, two of the UK’s national dance companies which were founded by female immigrants – The Royal Ballet companies by Ireland’s Ninette de Valois, and Rambert by Poland’s Marie Rambert.
Members are invited to enjoy a glass of wine and light refreshments while viewing a unique collection of photographs celebrating international female leaders breaking new ground and shaping the world of dance in the UK. The evening will include a welcome from One Dance UK, a talk from a guest speaker and there will also be plenty of time to network with colleagues from the dance sector.
A special collection of works not to be missed.
The event is free for members to attend. Numbers are limited so please book here to secure your place at this exclusive member event.
The exhibition is organised by One Dance UK with the kind support of Jane Pritchard, John Travis and the European Commission Representation in the UK. Photography drawn from the collection of John Travis and the bbodance collection.
