AN EVENING WITH TAGLIONI
Our first longer format film including dialogue. 'An Evening with Taglioni' is based on a true story. When legendary ballerina Marie Taglioni, the first woman to go 'en pointe' retired, her pointe shoes were bought by a fan in St Petersburg, cooked at a lavish dinner party and served to 35 adoring fans.
Our new short, due to be released later in 2020, is made in partnership with English National Ballet. 20 dancers from ENB feature along side a principal cast of actors and dancers.
