 "So little of what could happen, does happen"
-Salvador Dali

In early days of film and the Ballet Russes, artists were fiercely collaborative; Balanchine worked with Chanel, Picasso and Stravinsky. Salvador Dali worked with Luis Bunuel. Imagine if Zaha Hadid designed sets for a play directed by Sofia Coppola, with costumes by Zac Posen, starring Paloma Herrera?
