THE WEAVER ENSEMBLE
A BAROQUE ENTERTAINMENT
THE LOVES OF MARS & VENUS
THE LOVES OF PYGMALION
The Weaver Ensemble aims to promote the enjoyment and performance of baroque dance and theatre music in the UK and beyond. It was formed in 2016 to research and celebrate the work of John Weaver, the English choreographer, scholar and dancer, who created the first narrative ballet, The Loves of Mars & Venus, first performed on March 2nd, 1717 in Drury Lane, London.

“A packed house was completely engaged with this wonderful performance — the Baroque dance and music were superb and it was much enjoyed by everyone. I was particularly impressed by the company’s use of the entire space; it felt as though they’d time-travelled the entire theatre back to the 18th century. The audience feedback after the show was hugely positive.
I recommend this company and performance without hesitation.”
