New DVD featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov & Ana Laguna

Via Press Release:

Kultur is proud to announce the DVD release of Place starring Mikhail Baryshnikov.

The work proposes a modern but dynamic balance of two different worlds: keeping ballet’s inherent form while working with mixed media, four artists combine forces in a new type of dance for camera.

Place was created and staged by choreographer Mats Ek, directed by the award-winning Jonas Åkerlund (famous for collaborations with Lady Gaga, Madonna, U2, the Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams and Christina Aguilera) and especially developed to showcase the partnership of Mikhail Baryshnikov & Ana Laguna:

Place will be available on DVD from 27 March 2012.

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).
