Esprit du Jardin
11 mins. A spirit emerges from icy cold water to explore the beautiful snow covered garden she finds herself trapped within. We follow her on a journey as she dances through the changing seasons, summoning the forces of nature until she finally returns to the granite basin from which she arose. Set to the haunting score of ‘Speke’ by Michael Price, and with evocative choreography by Kristen McNally (The Royal Ballet) the spirit, played by Ashley Dean (The Royal Ballet) moves dreamily to the chill of winter, serenity of spring, warmth of summer and misty dampness of autumn – experiencing them in all their diverse glory.

The Sun is God
9 mins. Set in 1918, The Sun is God is a story of love, loss and remembrance told through the poetic use of classical ballet. Francesca Hayward (The Royal Ballet) plays a woman who imagines her betrothed (Matthew Ball – The Royal Ballet) has returned from the horrors of The Great War in France. Set in and around Petworth House in West Sussex, a painting by the great English Romanticist landscape painter JMW Turner ‘The Lake, Petworth, Sunset’ triggers memories of moments the couple have shared together, before the mist of the landscape slowly envelops Matthew and Francesca is left alone with only memories of their love.

In Her Hands
11 mins. Inspired by the life and work of Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin, ‘In Her Hands’ reflects on the relationship between the two French sculptors. Set in Paris 1892, Camille, played by Russian Ballerina Natalia Osipova (The Royal Ballet) is distracted and struggles to work as memories of their past swirl around her tormented mind, haunting her. She dismisses her model and slips into an abstract reverie, imagining herself as one of her sculptures dancing passionately with her lover (Matthew Ball – The Royal Ballet).
