The Place Prize Commissions

Riccardo Buscarini

Riccardo Buscarini, a Place Prize 2011 finalist, and Brooke Roberts, knitwear designer, met as winners of the Creatives in Residence programme at The Hospital Club. Riccardo choreographed Brooke’s spring/summer 2012 show for London Fashion Week and now Brooke returns the compliment by designing the costumes for his Place Prize commission.

Athletes is a reflection on competition, viewed as a tension between man and machine, set in a bleak world where cold mechanisms shift from cooperation to conflict, from solidarity to cruelty.

Athletes is one of four works selected for The Finals of The Place Prize for dance and can be seen at The Place from Wed 17 - Sat 27 April 2013 (book tickets)
