Peter Lathan

The film of balletLORENT’s version of Rumpelstiltskin with choreography by Liv Lorent, scenario by Carol Ann Duffy and music by Murray Gold will be launched by a live streaming on balletLORENT's Facebook page at 6:00 on Friday 8 December. The screen version is directed by Jonathan Haswell.

After that it will be available on demand for a limited time from the balletLORENT web site.

There is a trailer for Rumpelstiltskin on YouTube.

The filming was made possible with funding from The Space, a commissioning and development organisation established by Arts Council England and the BBC to support greater digital access to the arts. Its Chief Executive and Creative Director, Fiona Morris, said, “The Space is delighted to be working with balletLORENT, a highly creative dance company, known for inclusive productions that appeal to all ages and backgrounds. This heart-warming new show now has life outside of its recent run and can be seen by a range of new audiences.”

The Space is committed to supporting and facilitating the UK arts sector to realise its digital ambitions. It commissions arts projects and provides a production and distribution pipeline to ensure that these projects reach a wide and diverse range of audiences.
