The yearly Deloitte Ignite, a contemporary arts festival holding at the Royal Opera House, U.K is curated by The Royal Ballet and The National Gallery’s Minna Moore Ede.
According to the organisers, the month-long “festival celebrates and explores the origin of myth and creation,” focusing myths: such as “Prometheus, the Titan who creates man from clay and steals fire from the Gods, and Leda and the Swan, the mysterious conjunction of a mortal woman and the god Zeus, disguised as a swan."
