Introducing Charles Willmott

In September and October we are also pleased to be showing a series of works by painter Charles Willmott.

As painter, Charles Willmott confesses to having a “near obsession with dance, particularly the ballet”. He has worked with many greats of the classical world;  Darcey Bussell, Miyako Yoshida, Monica Zamora, Kevin O’Hare, Catherine Batcheller and Joe Cipolla.

His series of new works are based on a rehearsal by the Russian State Ballet of the world famous ‘Swan Lake’. Charles was privileged to attend dress rehearsals and a performance at the famous Malvern Theatres during the Company’s UK tour of 2012 enabling him to observe and prepare reference material from which a unique collection of works was made.
