Made in Leeds: Ma Vie

Ma Vie explores Giacomo Casanova's thirst for love, his complex relationship with the church and his eventual downfall as written in his infamous memoir 'Histoire de ma vie'.

Choreographer Dickson Mbi is a world-renowned dancer and choreographer in the Hip Hop community and first created Ma Vie in film for Northern Ballet's Digital Dance Platform.

Now Ma Vie explodes onto stage in a new, epic exploration of the life of history's most notorious lothario. 

See it exclusively in Leeds and London this autumn as part of our mixed programme Made in Leeds: Three Short Ballets.
