Interviews with Darcey Bussell, Kevin O’Hare and Christopher Hampson

Posted on November 8, 2013

In partnership with the Royal Academy of Dance, the free online arts website HiBROW [www.hibrow.tv] has filmed in-depth interviews with ballerina Darcey Bussell, Kevin O’Hare, director of The Royal Ballet, and Christopher Hampson, director of Scottish Ballet.

Each film looks at its subject’s career in dance, in conversation with Luke Rittner, chief executive of the Royal Academy of Dance. The three interviews were filmed following their participation in the Genée International Ballet Competition.
