The inspired two-act dance narrative tells the story of a ballerina torn between the demands of love and art.

Long term creative collaborator and New Adventures Associate Artist, Lez Brotherston designed the set and costumes for the ballet which features the company’s preferred dance surface – a Harlequin Studio vinyl performance floor.
