Bangkok Tour // October 2017 (Day 7)

After three very successful performances in Singapore, the company travels on to Bangkok, one of the most exciting cities in the world. At the moment however, the mood is somewhat subdued as the Thai people prepare for the cremation and state burial of their beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The official ceremony will take place on October 26th. Many people are wearing black and all billboards are covered with images of the deceased king with messages of love and respect for this monarch who reigned for an unprecedented 70 years. Nonetheless the company is very happy to be here performing two performances of John Cranko’s The Taming of the Shrew as part of  the 19th International Festival of Dance and Music.

Pure Seduction! // LE SPECTRE DE LA ROSE

Yes, today we have some more photos of Le Spectre de la Rose in our rehearsal diary, even though there is no male “spirit of the rose” to be seen. In Marco Goecke’s Spectre he has a strong female counterpart – here you can see our Demi Soloist Agnes Su rehearsing for this role:
