Portrait in oils by Deborah MacMillan
Kenneth MacMillan did not have an easy childhood. While it left him with a strong sense of being an outsider, this early sense became the rich material of his creativity.
He choreographed his ballets from need, creative and psychological, and the images he forged, along with his dancers and designers, are among the richest of the dance of our time.
This section is a portrait of his life and personality; of his collaborators; and of how his life influenced his work.
