Shobana Jeyasingh Dance visits The Roses in Tewkesbury for the first time, with Staging Schiele, a work inspired by a very controversial artist.

It’s inspired by the extraordinary work and life of Austrian artist Egon Schiele, who was famous - or infamous - for his unflinching nudes and searing self portraits, and scrutinises the eternal conundrum of the male artist and the female model.

A spokesman added: “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 Jeyasingh’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.”

The date is Wednesday October 23, at 7.30pm.
