The Ninth Life

Bayadère – The Ninth Life is a radical reimagining of Marius Petipa’s legendary ballet La Bayadère. More than a retelling, it searches for the roots of the bayadère temple dancer herself, and the allure she has exerted in Europe over the centuries. Using 21st century dance vocabulary this production explores cultural dislocation and the fraught dreams of faraway lands.

This learning resource provides support for the study and teaching of Bayadère – The Ninth Life in secondary schools and colleges, and most particularly at A-Level (Key Stage 5), following the AQA A-Level Dance specification.
