A performance of Swan Lake recorded in the dancers’ own bathtubs features among 25 works announced by BBC Arts as part of its lockdown programme.

Choreographer Corey Baker has recruited dancers from various companies for a short film, titled Swan Lake Bath Ballet, based on Tchaikovsky’s music.

The commissions are backed by Arts Council England and are part of the BBC’s Culture In Quarantine programme, prompted by the Covid-19 lockdown. Elsewhere in the programme, Cathy Mager’s Sign Night sees the performances of deaf artists projected onto landmarks and buildings.
