On Friday 20 November, the premiere of a new ballet Children of the Mantic Stain by Linder Sterling, choreographed by Kenneth Tindall and performed by Northern Ballet will feature the rug Diagrams of Love: Marriage of Eyes created with Dovecot. Other collaborators involved in the project include British award winning fashion designer Christopher Shannon designing the costumes for the ballet and composer Maxwell Sterling providing the score.

The rug, which was tufted at Dovecot by Kristi Vana and Dennis Reinmüller was commissioned for the British Art Show 8 which began its tour of 40 artists around four cities at Leeds Art Gallery on 9 October 2015.

The ballet will be performed on Friday 20 November at 6.30pm and 8.30pm at the Tiled Hall, Leeds Art Gallery. Book tickets from Northern Ballet
