This autumn, Anton Du Beke will create his first work for a contemporary dance company, Yorke Dance Project. The company’s programme Words Worth will include Du Beke’s new Easy to Love. It’s a series of duets and double duets, inspired by the glamour of old-school Hollywood.
The programme will include new works by Alessio Barbarossa, John Pennington and company director Yolande Yorke-Edgell, who will draw on letters from Marilyn Monroe, Johann Sebastian Bach and Queen Victoria, among others. The tour of Words Worth starts at ICIA, University of Bath on September 20. See www.yorkedanceproject.co.uk for details.
Yorke Dance Project has also been working with artist Sally McKay, and will perform at the opening of her London exhibition on September 13.
