Ballets Russes Inspires New Choregraphy in 21st Century

5:01

In conjunction with the National Gallery of Art's exhibit "Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes," choreographer Dana Tai Soon Burgess choreographed a new dance, "Revenant Elegy," inspired by the exhibit. Normally, an art museum would not be in the business of commissioning dance, but without seeing the physicality of dance, it is hard to understand the importance of the Ballets Russes.
