Staging Schiele

Colour, masterful lines and unusual perspectives: four dancers inhabit the highly charged world of the artist Egon Schiele, putting the human body on visceral display. Fresh from the success of 2018's Contagion (one of the year's top ten dance works for The Guardian and Evening Standard), Shobana Jeyasingh Dance returns with Staging Schiele. Inspired by the extraordinary work and life of the Austrian artist, famous for his unflinching nudes and searing self portraits, the piece scrutinises the eternal conundrum of the male artist and the female model. Jeyasingh's award-winning choreography matches the intensity of Schiele, engaging with his anxieties as well as his supreme self-confidence. Staging Schiele captures the artist's own self-conscious framing of himself and his work. Both intimate and formal, it throws light on his brief meteoric rise to fame.
