Degree of relationship to ancient play:
Part of the London 2012 Festival/Cultural Olympiad that accompanied the London 2012 Summer Olympics. A collaboration between the Royal Ballet and the National Gallery, the production's stimulus was three Titian paintings: Diana and Actaeon (1556-9), The Death of Actaeon (1559-75), and Diana and Callisto (1556-9). Three visual artists collaborated with the Royal Ballet's choreographers to create three performances: Mark Wallinger's 'Trespass'; Conrad Shawcross' 'Machina'; and Chris Ofili's 'Diana and Actaeon', all performed as a triple bill.
Media of production:
Choreographic work (dance, ballet, mime etc)
