'The U.K. Gets Big Play at the Kennedy Center This Spring.' by Jacqueline Trescott for the Washington Post. <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>London's Royal Ballet will return to the Kennedy Center this summer, ending a six-year absence, as part of a festival of arts from Britain.....In its program the Royal Ballet will pay tribute to Ashton, its founding choreographer. The company will do "Marguerite and Armand," created for the legendary Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. The repertoire will also include a full-length "La Fille Mal Gardee" in the engagement that starts June 5.<P>Contemporary dance from Britain will be represented by London's Random Dance Company, which will begin a run of performances May 31. In an unusual collaboration, Random Dance will join the Royal Ballet for the June 2 and 3 performances of "Duo:logue." This joint project was developed by [Deborah] Bull as part of the Artists' Development Initiative at the Royal Opera House and was supported by Kaiser. Wayne McGregor, Random's artistic director, choreographed the work.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>This is a bold step and shows the confidence that Kaiser has in Deborah Bull. I am delighted that Washingtonians will see McGregor's brilliant hybrid work 'Symnbiont(s)', which I saw premiered last year and the new work that he will create on his own company and the RB - how exciting.<BR> <P><A HREF="http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A38507-2001Feb21.html" TARGET=_blank>http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A38507-2001Feb21.html</A>
