The One With the Ballet-Mad Libs

Help us celebrate The Ballet Bag’s 1st Birthday!

The image on the left is another little teaser (see also this earlier snapshot) of our limited edition, gigposter-inspired, silkscreen art  specially commissioned to celebrate our one year Birthday. As you can see here we’ve been busy mixing the colours and we rather like that acid orange-on-blue. In fact, we’re quite proud that this ballet poster contains no trace of pink. The full image will be revealed this Thursday 22 April, so stay tuned.

You can win one of these posters by sending in your own Ballet-Mad Libs. Participants from all over the globe are welcome. The more the merrier. To get you going here are some of the first entries we have received, together with our own. We will post more as they come in:

Her favourite ballets feel like good books – one can see them 1,000 times and they always feel fresh. Linda loves Giselle, all full-length MacMillan plus Song of the Earth, Robbins’s Dances at a Gathering, Balanchine’s Serenade and Agon, Ashton’s Scènes de Ballet and Symphonic Variations.
