Indigenous connections: Sidney Nolan's Rite of Spring
photographs by Alex Poignant
Forty-five years after the London premiere of the Royal Ballet’s production of Stravinsky’s Rite of spring at Covent Garden, this display celebrates the anniversary with a selection of photographs taken by Axel Poignant during rehearsals.
Also featured are Sidney Nolan’s designs for the décor and costumes, together with a group of images taken in Arnhem Land in the 1950s by Poignant which inspired them. A spectacular re-creation of Nolan’s Moonboy backcloth marks the occasion.
