Below is a comment from Elisa Kay Sparks and a link to her review of Woolf Works.

Dear All-
I’ve finished my review/ explication of Woolf Works, the new Wayne MacGregor ballet I was lucky enough to get to see in London.  All the time I was watching it, I was wishing all of you were in the audience with me; this is the best I could do to make that so.  At the end I’ve added links to a lot of the reviews which have photographs of the performance and to a series of videos that show the dancers in rehearsal as well as  conversations among the choreographers, dancers, and dramaturg.

I saw the item below on Twitter today. It identified the shot as being “Virginia Woolf’s front porch in full bloom.”

The mural was commissioned by the Council for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts and the British Institute of Adult Education in 1943 for the dining hall of Devonshire Hill School in Tottenham. The design by Grant and Bell depicted the fairytale Cinderella, and was completed during World War II. Sadly, the mural no longer exists, having been dismantled and destroyed during renovation works at the school. Perhaps even more regrettable is that few people are aware that it existed at all. Like many other decorative works…
