Commissioned by English National Ballet in association with the Royal Albert Hall, Cinderella Games features an intergenerational cast of non-professional dancers, with professional dancers Chihiro Kawasaki and Matthew Hawkins in the lead roles. The film was conceived as a response to English National Ballet's production of 'Cinderella' by Christopher Wheeldon and was played as a curtain raiser at several venues on English National Ballet's national tour.
The film was recently released as one of ENB's 'Wednesday Watch Parties'. Click below to view.
