British rockers Radiohead are taking their acclaimed music in a bizarre new
direction - the ballet.
The THERE THERE hitmakers will be providing some of their most popular
tunes to a new production called SPLIT SIDES, which will be opening on
Broadway, New York next Spring (04).
Singer Thom Yorke and his bandmates are hoping the ballet - choreographed
by well-respected dance guru MERCE CUNNINGHAM - will then move from America to
their native Britain in the autumn, where they hope to perform the music live
A source close to the group says, "The show is very moving and the band
are chuffed to be involved. They say they would love to perform live in London
if their diary permits.
"Merce loves their music and is one of the most renowned guys in his
field. This show should be very big."
