|Tangents - New English Ballet (choreography Daniela Cardim Fonteyne)|
Dancing for Nepal is looking to raise funds for the Nepal earthquake appeal. At the St James Theatre, 12 Palace Street, London SW1E 5JA, near Buckingham Palace, from 20 to 22 August 2015 Dancing for Nepal is a programme of new ballets presented by New English Ballet Theatre, and guests artists from the Royal Ballet and English National Ballet. The works performed will include Tangents, to music by Mussorgsky, choreography and design by Daniela Cardim Fonteyne (formerly a dancer with Dutch National Ballet), Orbital Motion, to music by Philip Glass, choreography by Valentino Zucchetti (First Soloist at the Royal Ballet), Toca, to music by Villa Lobos with choreography and design by Erico Montes (First Artist at the Royal Ballet) and Mad Women choreography and design by Kristen McNally (Soloist at the Royal Ballet).
Funds raised will go to the Nepal Earthquake Recovery Appeal 2015 which was set up by Alison Marston, Head of Grants and Philanthropy at the Bulldog Trust. Alison Marston was born in Nepal where her family have lived for 40 years and she speaks Nepali as her first language. Donations will be directed at small, grassroots NGOs working on the ground to support Nepal's recovery, and will be carefully monitored by the Bulldog Trust (which runs Two Temple Place).
