Synopsis

A beautiful concertina book detailing a night at the Ballet - the pristine theatre, audience and performance on one side and the back-stage bustle and nerves on the other. Based on a performance of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, the images are not only inspired by the dramatic story but also the atmosphere of a working dance venue. Zhu illustrates the orchestra, the boxes and even the entrance hall and ticket office. Back-stage are ropes and pulleys, stage hands and prop handlers, ballerinas nervously awaiting their queue, the director signalling and gesturing silently.

Ping Zhu is a freelance illustrator who frequently contributes to the New Yorker, the New York Times, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. She also works with book publishers (Nobrow Press, Pushkin Press and Helium) as well as advertising agencies (VSA Partners, Pentagram, and Concrete). She attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and is currently based in London, UK.
