The Bolshoi: Dancing for Russia
Watch February 26, 4:00pm
What is it about the Bolshoi Ballet that makes it uniquely Russian? Former Royal Ballet dancer Deborah Bush enters the world of this famous ballet company to discover why it has come to epitomize the country itself. She recounts the impact the Bolshoi has had over the last 50 years, and discovers that its dancers don’t just perform for the Bolshoi, but for Russia itself. At the heart of the film are six archival recordings that have never been seen outside the country.
