Staging Schiele

Fresh from the success of 2018’s Contagion (one of the year’s top ten dance works for The Guardian and Evening Standard), we’re touring a new piece, Staging Schiele, in Autumn 2019. It’s inspired by the extraordinary work and life of Austrian artist Egon Schiele, famous for his unflinching nudes and searing self portraits, and scrutinises the eternal conundrum of the male artist and the female model.

Four dancers inhabit Schiele’s highly-charged world of colour, masterful lines and unusual perspectives, a world that puts the human body on visceral display. Shobana’s award-winning choreography matches the intensity of Schiele, engaging with his anxieties as well as his supreme self-confidence.

Staging Schiele captures the artist’s own self-conscious framing of himself and his work. Both intimate and formal, it throws light on his brief meteoric rise to fame.
