A screening of the newly reversioned documentary film, 'New Wave Ballet'. Featuring interviews and never before seen archival footage, the film explores British choreographer Kenneth MacMillan's early work. Lynne Wake will introduce the film and the screening will be followed by a discussion led by Dame Monica Mason, (Hon Fellow of St Hilda's College), who danced in Sir Kenneth's ballets (especially Rite of Spring and Song of the Earth) and who will talk about her work with him. Lady Deborah MacMillan, Sir Kenneth's widow, has kindly agreed to join us for the evening.

A drinks reception will follow the screening and discussion.
