The Hare and the Tortoise - a contemporary ballet at Wychwood School, Oxford, 25th and 26th October 2016Three daytime performances of my new Contemporary Ballet, performed in Oxford at Wychwood School, 72-74 Banbury Road

The story is based loosely on Aesop's original fable, however there are several additional twists and turns , and a cast of many extra animals including Frogs, Squirrels, Rats, Monkeys, a Skunk, a Pantomime Donkey and a Traffic Policeman... While the Tortoise plods merrily on, the Hare tries all sorts of shorts cuts and different modes of transport including a car and a railway trolley. 

Choreography by the amazing Ellie Aldegheri of Lunas Dance Project, with a team of professional dancers supported by some smaller student groups.
