Bronislava Nijinska

Bronislava Nijinska is the most celebrated woman choreographer of the twentieth century working in the ballet idiom. This talk will explore a pivotal moment in her development as an artist—her years in Kiev just after World War I—and the impact of the city’s multi-ethnic avant-garde on the creation of her first original works.
