A Dance Film I directed for Birmingham Royal Ballet. Shot in collaboration with 84 Films

 

City of a Thousand Trades is a love letter to Birmingham, commissioned by Birmingham Royal Ballet's director Carlos Acosta and celebrating the city's richly diverse cultural and industrial heritage. Birmingham became known as the City of a Thousand Trades at the height of the Industrial Revolution when skilled workers migrated to the city from throughout the Commonwealth, creating a melting pot of cultures. The ballet is brought to stage by Havana-born choreographer Miguel Altunaga, and dramaturg and co-director Madeleine Kludje from Birmingham Repertory Theatre, with music by Mathias Coppens, inspired by the City’s soundscape, including its legacy as the birthplace of Heavy Metal. City of a Thousand Trades is a new Ballet Now Commission and part of our triple bill, Curated by Carlos Acosta.

Most of us have an alter ego hiding under the surface. We try our best to keep it in, but sometimes it escapes.  In EGO, we get a front row seat into the psyche of a relationship. Using world class ballet, krump, popping & bboying we witness different moments played out in pure contrast by 4 incredible dancers.

Converting the city’s walls and landscapes into an imaginative playground painted by movement and creativity, the artists’ longing to perform and connect resiliently shines through.
