This is a unique and exciting opportunity to discover not only emerging choreographic talent and trends but also dancers from international companies rarely seen on UK Stages. 

Emma SouthworthCreative Producer for The Royal Ballet, comments: ‘We have been overwhelmed by the response of companies to participate in this inaugural event.  The Linbury Theatre now affords us the wonderful opportunity to devise and host important choreographic development programmes such as this; International Draft Works is an initiative we hope will become a regular event in the Linbury programming calendar. We very much look forward to welcoming our international colleagues in the dance community to the Royal Opera House.’
